The Goldbach conjecture [La conjecture de Goldbach].

The Goldbach conjecture states that each even integer number N greater or equal to 4 can be written as the sum of two prime numbers. For example:
```                    4   = 2+2
6   = 3+3
8   = 3+5 [= 5+3]
10  = 3+7 = 5+5 [= 7+3]

Each straight line displays an even integer number N such that:
```                    N = P1+P2
```
the two prime numbers P1 and P2 being displayed using the {x=P1,y=P2} coordinates. In order to exhibit the commutativity of the addition, both {P1,P2} and {P2,P1} couples are displayed, hence the symmetry.

Here N varies between 6 and 76.
