If you want to work on one or a few exponents ahead of the server assigned range you can add them manually to the worktodo file and the client will register them with the v5 server if they are not handed out to someone else. You will need the v5 server protocol for this, so use a v25.7 client or likewise.
Let me be more specific.

v5 says there's a bunch of numbers in the 91M range only at 2^56, and they're unassigned.
Say, I want to take them to 2^62.

Is there an easy way to turn the server's data into a worktodo file similar to the old decomp method?
