Well... erm... not quite sure what I've got going on here.

I picked up an api key from Google, but I couldn't paste it into the 
text field. And I couldn't enter more than one character manually. I 
finally brought up the property editor a couple of times until I could 
get rid of the single character and then type the api key into the field 
one character at a time. That seemed to work.

Went out of edit mode and tried to click on the map. That triggered a 
script error, so I figured it needed to do some setup stuff (loading 
libraries, etc) with the api key in place. I saved the stack and quit 
and reloaded the IDE. I launched the stack again and clicked the 'load 
map' button. That triggered a series of errors to the point where I 
finally had to disable messages and shut it all down.

Obviously I'm missing out on something, but I'm not sure what.
But it looks like a promising app.
