   I think it's a splendid idea!


[George, I answer by email since I do not read regularly mersenneforum.]

Indeed! About the k*b^n+c form, can prime95 deal with b<>2?
Recognizing such a form is easy if k=1 and b is not too large,
but for general k I have to think about it.

Also, I don't see why 2) is simpler than 1). 2) will also require to 
have several optimized prime95.dll for different machines, no?

Assuming 2), for which configurations will you provide prime95 libraries?
Windows, MacOS, Linux? x86, powerpc, x86_64?
