prime words

I hearby declare a "prime word": a word that is not made up of any subwords (in the manner of the 'Emmett Williams' word finder). That knocks out most of the english language since anything with an i or an a are out. So ... prime words are a rarity. And finite since the english language is finite.

You can define a word's factorization as the number of prime words it is made up of.

I think I am _not_ going to write a prime word generator right now. But I did squeeze two more orders of magnitude out of my 'Emmett Williams' generator. You can now render the results of up to ten letters!

Rewrote it in c++ (used some vectors for a few sloppy bits outside the main work functions). :D
