Default New BOINC framework for factoring

This codebase was announced by Tom Ritter at the EKO security conference, and was actually used to factor a 512-bit RSA key in two days.

Greg, is there anything that NFS@Home can use in here?

(the GNFS subdirectory has some nice statistical visualizations too)

PS: The slides mention a service that factors 512-bit RSA keys at EUR5000 each. He's probably talking about these guys.
