Some timing comparisons on elementary issues.

In[78]:=
n = 5000;

In[79]:=
li = {};
a1 = Timing[ Do[ li = {li,0}, {n}]; Flatten[li] ];

In[81]:=
li={0};
a2 = Timing@ Flatten@ Nest[ Append[li,#]&, 0, n-1];

In[83]:=
li={0};
a3 = Timing@ Flatten@ Nest[ Insert[li, #,-1]&, 0, n-1];

In[85]:=
li = {};
a4 = Timing[ Do[AppendTo[li,0], {n}]; li];

In[87]:=
First /@ {a1, a2, a3, a4}

Out[87]=
{0.233333 Second, 0.383333 Second, 0.433333 Second, 23.1167 Second}

In[88]:=
SameQ@@ (Last/@ {a1, a2, a3, a4})

Out[88]=
True

If you have time, please post other elementary methods adding to this 
list.
