It's fair to say that for sufficiently small values of N, the time
taken by the actual work will likely dominate the time taken by the
yields. It's not quite correct though to say that a O(N) piece will
dominate a O(N log N) piece, because the whole point of measuring the
asymptotic complexity is the observation that as N grows, the O(N log
N) component will *eventually* become dominant. If you're only talking
about "sufficiently small" values of N, then big O complexity is
