Default How 'bout an ecm server for numbers about to enter Prime95 first-pass?

Is there a server for this? If not, would someone be willing to set one up?

I'm thinking the numbers could be exponents that would enter the Prime95 queue in 2-3 months, then once a month, the numbers at the leading edge could be given back, and another month's worth of numbers could be put in.

The search would mainly be for 20, 25, and 30 digit numbers.

I'm sure there's a reason this hasn't been done, but I don't know it. :)

It is not cost-effective to run ECM on the big Mersenne numbers.
