      It is notable that
      http://physics.open.ac.uk/~dbroadhu/cert/gigantic.txt
      now contains 5 proofs of primality above 50k digits for
      which great effort was expended in finding and proving prime
      factors of N^2-1, before using CHG and/or BLS methods to
      prove primality of the target, N.

      Congrats to Tom Wu and Bouk de Water for these remarkable finds.
