James (a.k.a. bearnol), if you can't formally justify your asymptotic-complecity claims in a way most reasonable folks can understand, then please be so kind as to at least provide some nontrivial example factorizations, their runtimes, and basic notes about your implementation. I don't want to hear any guff along the lines of "well, I haven't actually *coded* it yet..." or "My implementation uses off-the-shelf-package X, which is, like, totally suboptimal and disguises the true breakthrough speed of the algorithm" - those are the kinds of dodges used by cranks, rogues and scoundrels, i.e. the kinds of people I'm sure you wouldn't want to be seen as keeping company with.
