Yes that does make sense .

There is also the existing "inmem" option. As the name suggests, siqs does all work in RAM and never writes to siqs.dat. Of course if something goes wrong or you want to abort then you have to start over. But for most jobs that's seconds to a few minutes or so. And in EdH's case it would probably solve the looping problem because if no factors are found, the next time around an entirely new matrix will be built.

-inmem 70

Where 70 (for example) means that all 70 digit inputs or smaller are processed without saving to file.
