Moving the Marble-Widget library into a place such as kdesupport is planned. 
However it still needs to become more mature until we feel like this would be 
a good idea.

I'll just go for the QNetworkAccessManager replacement for now (w/o KIO). That 
will take some time however. And with the little time I currently have and 
seeing that the other members of the Marble Project also seem to be involved 
with other things I'm pretty sure that we won't make your imposed deadline. So 
I'd like to ask you to give us more time.
