It's ~80% done

* James may even have implemented part of verification on the server
I took a look at the code again.

For the smaller kernels in mfaktc you have access to the residual, for the larger kernels the residual is not always computed and we'd need a 2nd proof functions which will be similar but won't directly minimize residual but some other intermediate product (e.g. lower 32 bits of residual)
