The reason I brought up the v4 server data, is that it could be used to find P-1 bounds of exponents that have later had a factor found. The v5 server deletes that information from the "exponents with no known factor" table, but is often still available in the detailed results log.
I peeked in the v4 database and unless I'm looking in the wrong spot, I only saw some of those types of details starting with exponent 15,541,007.

I didn't dig very deep in there though.

The "option 2" to store that data in a new table seems workable, with a view that could easily show it along with whatever other info if needed. :)
