Default P-1 factoring != "Mersenne numbers to factor"?

How can I do P1 factoring only, the part that takes large quantities of RAM? I thought that choosing only "Mersenne numbers to factor" would do it, but that seems to be only factoring that doesn't require much RAM. I have plenty of RAM in one of my machines and would like to make use of it so that people with less RAM don't have to do the P1 factoring part, they can go straight to LL. Is this possible? I suppose I could just grab exponents and then manually unreserve them once the P1 part is done, but that seems silly...

Or am I trying to do something pointless?
