      David Broadhurst questioned me off-list as to the meaning of this sentence,
      and upon re-reading it, I have to admit that I don't know what sort of train
      of thought was going through my head when I wrote this. I actually seek the
      least j such that M + j and M - j are simultaneously prime.
