I iterate the whole selection twice, as you can see by the output of the
numbers "1000000" and "2000000" which shows the number of items it
iterated. It took just 300ms to iterate them.
The limit() is not part of the benchmark, it just lets you know that the
data is real. Outputting 2000000 results to a terminal would only
measure the speed of writing to a terminal.
So how long did RTL take?
