Does that need any changes to the running kernel? The website mentions a
pre-compiled kernel module.

TMC support would be very nice, but I'm afraid the existing projects are
in their early stages and it may be much work to integrate it properly.

Yes, good idea. That should also take care of the scrolling problem in
the current dialog (two scroll areas competing with each other). I'll
give that a try soon. Patches are welcome of course, currently I'm still
concentrating on polishing 1.0.

Looks nice, but I'm not sure if that's doable (in an easy way) with pure
Qt ListViews. We're also lacking the time information currently in
Marble, though I plan to add that as well (for 1.1). ORS and Monav
provide the information, so it's not too hard to implement.
