I'm seeing `int(s)`

take about 1.5ms, which doesn't seem that slow, and is about 500x faster than `str(n)`

Wait, there is a big problem in my timing code.

I'm seeing `int(s)`

take a long time, but `Integer(s)`

is relatively quick: http://aleph.sagemath.org/?q=3ddbbfe6-0640-4700-bef4-1ead8214737c

On my computer, Sage's `Integer(s)`

talks about half the time that Mathematica's `ToExpression[s]`

takes.
