[Marble-devel] QGraphicsView Overlay for marble

Hi all,

Just keeping you guys updated on what i'm doing ( and mostly trying to 
keep myself updated ;) ) with the Overlay stuff. Also i just wanted to 
continue the IRC chat about this, allowing Torsten to get back to work ;)

The whole overlay code would make sense to be put into the Plugin 
Structure that exists in marble, so that third parties could come along 
and make their own overlay without any hassle. But we have a slight 
problem in that we can't really initialise the Overlay code correctly 
from within the context of the plugin loader. When i say initialise i 
just mean that the MarbleOvelay code needs to be constructed with the 
MarbleWidget as its parent, e.g. overlay = new MarbleOverlay(this) where 
that code was inside the MarbleWidget.

The plugin loader doesn't really have any reference, or any way to 
reference the MarbleWidget so i can't do this with the current 
architecture. all i can seem to find with regards to references are 
references to the MarbleModel which doesn't really know anything about 
the widget.

Any input would be appreciated, but i'll keep looking anyway ;)
