Actually, it occurs to me that the semi-automated method mentioned above would only do P-1 testing of exponents that had never been P-1 tested... but there are some exponents that have been P-1 tested with lower-than-average bounds.

For instance:


Someone with a machine with more memory could redo these P-1 tests with higher bounds. This would have to be done by manual testing, since the semi-automated method would skip any exponents that have had any P-1 test done at all no matter how low the bounds.

Still, the higher priority would probably be exponents that haven't had any P-1 test at all done, and there's still plenty of those.
