Cyclotomic Polynomial Factoring methods
Could anyone tell me whether ECM renders Cyclotomic Polynomial Factoring methods obsolete (other than p1, as it is a constant factor faster than ECM if it succeeds, I believe)?
Or, is there a significant possibility that for some k and N=pq, PHI_k(p) might be smooth where ECM finds no results? Are there any industrialstrength implementations of Cyclotomic Polynomial Factoring for values of k where the degree of PHI_k(p) > 2? (Sorry if this is a stupid question  I'm just enjoying learning about these methods at the moment...)

They were obsolete the moment Bach & Shallit wrote their paper.
