The test could be improved for sure, but this shows that our
Console/Convert code needs improvement in memory usage, jit time etc..

Why is SHA1 even involved here? That method looks like it needs some
performance love anyway.

Anyway, http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/langs.php reports that version
0.96 is used: version 1.0.1 of mono should be used instead (cvs HEAD
should be mostly just as stable and will give better results). Also, the
-O=all option should be used just as -O2 or whatever is use with gcc
