Not the whole thing, but there's been work on the components of the
GNFS, and test-runs to see if those changes are worthwhile when
applied to the polynomial selection or sieving could be helpful. See
for examples; and I believe Paul Zimmermann would be to the person to
ask if he has any ideas in the works that could use the flops.
