Google Earth Monks - Part II (The Code)

Greetings!

This is the "final" (..heh) version of the code that's used to generate the Google Earth KMZ files referred to in Google Earth Monks. It's presented here partly for posterity, and partly to elicit some feedback and (hopefully) some suggestions for improvement.

For some background, read the original thread, or visit the "googlemonks" homepage.

Note: I've posted the code here in CUFP (rather than in the original thread) after seeking advice in the CB.

Edit: s/illicit/elicit/ (thanks, GrandFather)
