Yes, it's in my TODO list. the current code already use KML to ask to Marble where to place the picture dot on the map. Currently only one picture mark is supported, but i will improve code. If you is curious, look into libs/imageproperties/worldmapwidget.cpp

Perhaps in the future. New KML import code from marble is currently under construction. Perhaps Torsten can give us more info about...

In all case, is marble can handle mouse click over marks and if a signal is fire from marble, it's easy to use it in digiKam to change iconview focus.
