Is there a generalization of Goldbachs conjecture for prime ideals in number fields?

Googling the obvious, «Goldbach number fields», comes up with a bunch of relevant results, In particular, a link to [Takayoshi MITSUI, On the Goldbach problem in an algebraic number field I. J. Math. Soc. Japan, Vol 12, No. 3, 1960] here

Sigh, this should have been a comment. –  Mariano Suárez-Alvarez Feb 23 '11 at 16:34
Why? Looks like an answer to me. –  Gerry Myerson Feb 23 '11 at 23:52
Well... If the result of typing "golbach numbr fields" into google and copying the 2nd result is the answer, the question cannot be that good :) –  Mariano Suárez-Alvarez Feb 24 '11 at 1:30
So, good questions deserve answers, bad questions deserve comments? Yeah, I can sorta see that. –  Gerry Myerson Feb 24 '11 at 3:32
