[gdal-dev] KMZ Support in OGR?

I don't know what KMZ support is in the current GDAL KML but I
downloaded the libKml package from http://code.google.com/p/libkml/ and
it has KMZ support built in. If anyone was going to look at an update
for GDAL / OGR they might want to look at that library. The notes on
the website indicate that libKml is "an implementation of the candidate
OGC KML 2.2 standard".
A potential snag is that the Google library is under the BSD open source
license. I don't keep track of the differences in license types so I
can't say if one is better than the other.

I'm not sure whether the zip file record structure is implemented in
zlib or not. If the latter is the case implementing this would be
slightly beyond the scope of GDAL. There are several projects out
there to provide such API for various kind of languages.
