to be more specific, I tried to replicate the results from this
tutorial: http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/Marble/LayerInterface

but I get stuck in this call:

MarbleWidget *mapWidget = new MarbleWidget;

// Create and register our paint layer
MyPaintLayer* layer = new MyPaintLayer(mapWidget);

as there is no MarbleWidget::map() function in the current (trunk) API,
there is a MarbleWidget::model() fuction, but then the function
MarbleModel::addLayer() is non-existent by now.

looking at the stable (subversion) API, I don't see how the above would
work either, as MarbleWidget::map() is a const function, whereas
addLayer() will require a non-const pointer to work on.

thus I wonder what the current, up-to-date method for adding layers /
plugins is..
