      No. Any 6-tuple of length 14 will have at least one
      number which is divisible by 2, 3 or 5.
      See http://anthony.d.forbes.googlepages.com/ktpatt.txt
      and http://www.opertech.com/primes/k-tuples.html
      for the densest admissible k-tuple patterns.
      "Prime 6-tuplet" often refers to 6 primes in the densest
      admissible pattern. The largest known are at
      http://anthony.d.forbes.googlepages.com/ktuplets.htm
      (5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19) is inadmissible because all 5 values
      modulo 5 are present.
