Niiice!!!! This is just great!  :)

I tried a two-step feed BTW (that's three separate sets of lists) , with the
original structure. It ran with same speed as your new version (10..20% faster)
but with the memory of the previous one :) (80M for 8 mil primes vs the new
one's 10M). But your new structure is just great! I hoped there is something
better, that's why I posted it here in the first place. 

'pairwise' puts odd leafs higher on the right. It might be better if it was so
on the left, for the frequency of production is higher. 

Thanks a lot for your comments!
