Default Adding New Candidates

There seems to be interest in opening a new range of exponents. In the past we have used a silly little rule to balance between more work on existing candidates and new candidates. We haven't discussed how this will work now that we have GPU ranges and CPU ranges. I propose that we apply the rule to the GPU range, and that opening a new range means converting the CPU range to GPU and opening a new CPU range.

If my counting is correct, we could open a new range now.

Bits Target Actual
        >=       >=
81     15       19
80     30       34
79     60       76
78    all      103
If this meets with approval, all current candidates will become available for GPU after Luigi and I add the candidates to 3321936000 for CPU.
