I want to wait on that a couple weeks, since these lowest Q values are most valuable to search with the bigger siever area; once we reach Q=10M it seems reasonable to allow folks to use A=31 and less memory. Yield will still be 3.5 or so with the smaller siever.
How close are we to 10M for Q? Is the plan still to go to A=31 for Q > 10M thereby lowering the memory requirements?

Guess it all hinges on Greg’s plans for this composite, i.e. when it starts sieving and Q range.
