Calling cirq.Simulator().run(..) on your circuit to get an idea of how it'd behave if you were to run on Google's (apparently) forthcoming real hardware is fine and dandy. Is there a way to estimate how long it would take?

Apologies if this is not a suitable question for QC.SE or I've missed something obvious!

You can get a rough idea of runtimes by using the cirq.estimate_run_time (doc), cirq.estimate_run_sweep_time(doc), or cirq.estimate_run_batch_time (doc). These represent the different ways of running the quantum circuit (as a single program, a program plus a set of parameters for the program, or as a batch of programs plus parameters).
