You can do the testing and generation with KAlgebra already (there's the
functions that do that somewhere, you just need to load the file).
I don't understand the visualization feature, maybe you could elaborate on
If you want to create an app to be able to optimize such algorithms, I don't
really think KDE Edu is the place to do that. You can improve the tools you
use to research them (debuggers, profilers) but I think this is out of KDE
Edu scope. Maybe you should twist your idea towards the user cases instead
of writing a prime numbers application.

Thanks :)
