Forgot to mention, the radiosity count value was 100.

It's worth pointing out that there's absolutely nothing fancy in this scene,
everything's just flat colours, and I've kept recursion_limit at 1, which means
only directly-lit or emissive areas contribute to the radiosity lighting.
There's also a bit of geometry optimisation - everything is either boxes or
meshes, which render very quickly, except for the CSG in the roofs, which I've
bounded manually.

A high-quality render with a high radiosity count, complex textures,
reflections/glass and media would obviously be somewhat slower!
