We'll give libkml a try. I hope to know more by next week.
Coming to what Brian said: It seems kind of contradicting to me. Since the KML
is proper XML, it better serves as an exchange format, than it does for
displaying, since it doesn't show anything besides geometry itsself.
I can't imagine why it shouldn't be possible for flat data structure.
