Question about the client algoritm...

I'm new to the project...
Do the client data packets carry with them the maximum known value that still follows the pattern, and then stop computation when the calculated value falls below that value?
In other words, if we've calculated large values that meet the criteria, and I assume we are doing it in numerical order, then we don't have to reduce each value itself to one, but we can "short circuit" the process when we fall into a state that is known to reduce to one. Does the client take advantage of such short circuits?
