[kde-edu]: Marble questions

I'm considering using the Marble widget in a Qt application as a may to
locate geographically indexed data...i.e. show some points on Marble to
indicate data set locations then click on the point to load the data in
the application.

First, the application is not allowed to arbitrarily access the network
for security reasons. I tried disabling data download (including
Wikipedia access) by calling MarbleWidget->setDownloadManager(NULL)
which did not seem to work. Is there something else I need to do or
should I ifdef out the Wikipedia code before I compile the widget?

Second, I need to dynamically add vector data after Marble has
initialized. This data is not available in a file so I can't just load
some kml, etc. How can I add vector data to Marble via the C++ API after
it is initialized? If I can't do this via the public API I can make some
patches...is this something that would likely be accepted as a patch?
(should I submit the changes?) If I need to add this capability, could
someone point me in the right direction to get started?
