Is this about itsy bitsy tiny int[32] primes, or big 4 kbit
primes, such as are used for cryptography, and are sieved 
with probabilistic number-theoretic wizardry?  The examples
look like little numbers and simple tests.

But then, I'm an engineer, and as the punchline to the joke goes,
"1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is prime ..."
Also, my private key is 17.
