Out of 17 programs, Java was 9 x 1.xx times better, 2 x 2.xx times
better and 2 times significantly better. These 2 programs
(pidigits & regex-dna) are slow on Mono regardless of the
language Mono is compared with.
BTW, Java's pidigits uses native calls to gmplib (http://gmplib.org/).
This is called cheating ;-)
