First, there are technical reasons. If they have to sort out the prime n before, that's work. Then, we are too slow, and they have to put them in again, and explain to newbies why there are so small tests. And so on.

And then, I don't see the point. The work we did is being done. I save time, others save time, and we can spend it somewhere more valuable. For me, really, to stop is the most natural thing of the world. I am not sad at all.
