Well it’s basically on cpu cycles per instruction. There are definitely
some inaccuracies beyond just the JavaScript event driven model (I don’t
get to be the only code on my thread or get a guaranteed time slice).  But
it ought to be close enough.

The JUMP game seems to work off how fast inkey$ runs. I am guessing the
issue is that CloudT does some queueing beyond what the model t provides
due to some very fancy keyboard stuff going on in mobile browsers
(predictive text and such). So keys batch up and allow the man run faster
than he should.
