Default Credit due for completing a TF bit range not recogized.

I believe the default for Prime95 is to stop searching a bit range once TF finds a factor.
With MFAKTC we have the option to stop or finish the range.

I understand that this report now indicates via (*) if the complete range was done.
https://www.mersenne.org/report_recent_cleared/

However the GhzDays credit is solely based on the size of the factor found whether the bit range was finished or not.

I propose that IF the entire bit range is factored then credit be awarded for the entire bit range regardless of the size of the factor.
