Please forgive my ignorance, but would it be expensive to somehow sum/hash the vector of dividing candidates, post sieve? Or are they spread over too many vectors?

Edit: Sorry, I just realized this would be useless. Different for every run. Never mind...

Edit2: What about a sum/hash of the vector of candidates /before/ the sieve? Is that deterministic and reproducable? (Sorry... Haven't had my second cup of coffee yet...)
