That doesn't actually give any idea how long the script code takes to run.
The idea probably isn't to make it delay a lot, but to actually see how
much time the script is actually using.  It can be hard to compare the
efficiency of two pieces of script code if you machine is so fast that you
can't tell.  On a slower machine you could tell which is more efficient.
