The EMBOSS implementation is fastest by a mile - takes less than 3
seconds. But the code is, uhm, hard to read.

I think table lookups will win in C, whatever you try. But it may be an
interesting exercise if we can get close. Note I am perhaps not using the
fastest JVM.

java version "1.6.0_20"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_20-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 16.3-b01, mixed mode)
