Well, apparently it wasn't done, so I did it. The (in progress)
result is here:
I'm having a problem with Safari showing the map properly
*sometimes*. I'm working on that.
The other problem I'm having is that this isn't going to be a drop-in
kind of deal that will work with Pages. Pages don't have the same
hooks for actions and filters that regular posts do. I really want
this to work with Pages, so I guess I'll have to provide a sample
template, but I think that this is a shortcoming of WordPress that
really undermines the usability of Pages... Should I report a bug on
this, or is it a known area of enhancement?
