 One of Vidalia's existing features is a network map that shows the user
 the approximate geographic location of relays in the Tor network and
 plots the paths the user's traffic takes as it is tunneled through the
 Tor network. The map is currently not very interactive and has rather
-poor graphics. Instead, we would like to leverage KDE's Marble widget
