I'm running a test where I'm comparing the speed of prime-finding algorithms against each other and against PrimeQ. PrimeQ obviously caches results:

Timing[PrimeQ[superlongnumber]][[1]]

=> 0.013356

Timing[PrimeQ[superlongnumber]][[1]]

=> 0.00006

How can I disable this so PrimeQ doesn't execute amazingly fast? Even better, how can I make my algorithms do this too?
