Jean or Tcadigan, does that sound reasonable? At some point in the future, we'll probably also provide some sieving help for Jene Penne's three Sierp base 4 k's after he's done LLRing them to n=2M base 2.
I too tried it out for a couple runs on my new computer just to see the difference, I get ~7000 seconds on 2.8 C2Q

the crediting sounds fine to me. I just really want a prime to be found

as for the breaking up the file...I would lean towards it if it isn't too much effort to create them. since the tests take so long I doubt there will be vast amounts of interest in them (if any) and maintenance shouldn't be all that high, and like you said it fills a good purpose for temp idle comps.
