Yes, I finally got KMZ to work in Google Maps.  It was a problem with the
way the zip (KMZ) file was being programmatically created and there were
some characters being appended at the end for some reason.  Google Maps
seems very sensitive to this and would not open the file.  But, the
resultant KMZ's opened fine in Google Earth and zip programs.  I am using
the SharpZipLib from http://www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SharpZipLib/ to
produce the KMZ files.

The fix was to use .NET Response.OutputStream.Write of a the zip archive
after previously assigning to a buffer.  Before, I was using
Response.BinaryWrite of the 
archive buffer.  In my case, In the end, it looks like it was a .NET issue.

Also, I wanted to know if you are still parsing the marker information on
the client.  I've have it to the point where I am streaming out KMZ from our
Oracle Spatial database/Mapguide OS and it works well in Google Earth.  I
remember a post where you were speaking about the ability of Google Maps to
support KML/KMZ.   I tried to load my KMZ file in the search field of Google
Maps and it won't work.  It states an illegal file or something to that
effect.  Have you have any luck displaying KMZ in Google Maps?
