example kml to show a thumbnail on mouse over

The attached file is an example of how to realize a mouse-over thumbnail
using kml. To test this out:
- edit the two occurances of 
  to an existing file in your thumbnails directory
- (optional: adjust  dot_image.png to an existing file with a dot, but
   this is not necessary as GE display a small marker in any case)
- in google earth: add this thumb_mouse_over.kml (with full path)
  as network link to the Temporary Places
- double click on the new entry and it should move you to the location
  of the marker
- now on a mouse over the small thumbnail will be shown
- clicking on that mini-thumbnail will show the thumbnail in larger size
  (including a brief comment).

So to realize this from within digikam, support for
 IconStyle and StyleMap (normal/highlight) 
would be needed.
The Region/LatLonAltBox/Lod/LookAt are not needed for this feature.

I just checked with marble: while this file loads fine and
clicking on the resulting point also allows to see the contents, 
the mouse-over, the IconStyle and StyleMap is not yet supported.

Torsten, if I remember correctly, further kml features are planned
for post 4.1, is that right? Would IconStyle/StyleMap be one of those?

This is all really great work, Gilles, Marcel and Torsten+the marble team.
Thanks a lot! Arnd
