Yes. If I saw code (even horribly inefficient code) of that sort, with at least one user-selectable variable (otherwise you could just preprogram a known prime!) of this sort then I'd agree that he has some sort of apparently-prime-generating algorithm, and then we could talk about whether it actually works and how to make it efficient enough to find million- or billion-digit primes. Until then this is all muh ado about nothing.
