Default Run P-1 before PRP tests

The current timing for PRP is about 2 hours. Since most Mersenne numbers with small factors have very little P-1 done, I would like Prime95 to be changed so it performs P-1 with bounds B1 = 500000, B2 = 15e6 before attempting PRP. In this way more factors can be found, and no time is lost running PRP on numbers that can be easily factored.
