Hehe. Doubt that will have any effect, though. :)
It will not address the problem for the most interesting material,
though, as the google map data isn't GPL, and can not be claimed to be
GPL. And a google earth clone is rather useless without permission to
fetch data from google.
I recommend earth3d and the NASA worldwind spinoffs if you want free
map data. :)
