[R] plotting multiple lines on single graph ggplot2

```Its very much simple.

Simply, if we do like the following
x<-c(100,200,300,400,500)
y<-c(1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5)
a<-c(600, 700, 800, 900, 1000)
b<-(1.5, 1.7, 1.9, 2.1, 2.3)
plot(x,y)
points(a,b)

As you can see the call to points() function will superimpose a new
curve (with some new points on x-axis) on the existing plot.

This is what I want to achieve with qplot or ggplot functions
