If nobody opposes (or has a better suggestion) "Gtk2::Ex::GeoDataWindow"

that said you're free to do it, espeically if you have reasons to. one
alternative, though slightly hackey, is what Gtk2 does to install
examples. have a look at Gtk2's Makefile.PL and search for 'install-'.
that rule when placed in a postamble section will allow you to install
examples and demo's as Gtk2 does. for instance, make install-examples
installs all of the files in the examples directory and make
install-gtk-demo does the same for gtk-demo. you'd want to modify the
rule slightly to install into perl-Gtk2-Ex-Geo or something like that.

don't let all the do this, change that feedback discourage you, we' just
trying to make all things Gtk2-Perl as uniform and good as humanly
