      Yes. First, though, do some quick trial divisions, then do a strong
      pseudoprime test. My program does 1,000,000 of them in that range (odd and
      even) in 13.6 seconds, so it would so 30 million in about 7 minutes. It
      does a trial division for the first 100 primes and then switches to
