dragon(N) plots the dragon curve produced from folding a strip of paper halfway N times, assuming that it can be done endlessly. The resulting plot is the folded paper: one end is at (0,0), followed by 2^N line segments at right angles with each other.

The hsv colormap is used to color the line segments from end to end.
