i don't even seen why it matters what the definition of "prime" is
for this. irrespective of what a prime number is, "1" is a factor
of "1" in all cases. so "factor 1" is well defined and should
produce a reasonable result.
factor prints prime factors normally because those are useful, but
they are not the *only* factors that exist.
please make factor print factors again, even if there are no actual
prime factors involved.
