Letterpress cheating in Rust 1.6: How long has it been?!?

Has it been over a year since I ran these crappy benchmarks? Really?

I have upgraded all of the assorted toy Rust programs, my ports of Jeff Knupp's Creating and Optimizing a Letterpress Cheating Program in Python, to Rust 1.6.0. I also re-executed the notoriously crappy benchmarks.
