Thank you very much, Tony, for that surprising coincidence.
that there is a definite close relationship between the two sequences. What
I find so surprising is that A082917 depends on the addition of primes,
while A100827 depends on multiplication of primes and their powers (but
there is of course also subtraction involved--this certainly calls for
further pondering).
