         Routine for Computing Primes
Routine PRIMES computes primes up to n by the sieve of Erathostenes,
complemented as explained on TP-book page 226. The routine is
completely self-contained, "PRIMEND:" labels its final line.

Inputs:  [A]= n < &/2,  p1,p2,p3,p4 stacky;
Returns: 2,3,5,... primes -= n  wordwise on T1,
         p1 on top word = pi(n),  p2,p3,p4 as before.
