This means it is around 4.46 times larger than average for that prime size.
Rough heuristics indicate 1 in e^m random gaps have merit above m.
Here are 176 larger gaps: http://www.trnicely.net/gaps/g100k.html
They all have much better merits. Most are between 10 and 15, the best is
18.33 (gap size 337446 with proven primes). That page accepts merits as low as
Milton's, but it appears nobody has bothered to submit them.
