So in summary:

I think we can have two kinds of P-1 testing going on in parallel:

1) The semi-automated method described in http://mersenneforum.org/showthread....1671#post11671
whose purpose would be to do a clean sweep of all P-1 tests ahead of the leading edge of double-checking.

2) The manual method of posting sets of Pfactor=p,depth,1 lines for worktodo.ini. These won't be consecutive, rather they'll be a mix of smaller and larger exponents. The idea is to thin out the overall herd of un-P-1-tested exponents rather than do an entire range at a time.
