[gdal-dev] gdal2tiles output packed as kmz doesn't load in Google Earth

Hmm, i see:

/Users/warren/Downloads/1202.png - HTTP 404(Not Found) The server has not
found anything matching the URI.
/Users/12/1037/2404.kml - Could not open file
/Users/12/1037/2405.kml - Could not open file

So it's a relative path problem, not reading from the zip root. The xml is
below - hmm... what's the proper way to refer to zip-local root? Do these
files load for anyone else's version of Google Earth?

Thanks a lot!
