[Interest] QtLocation Map Widget

I asked to the folk want they to have GeoMap widget or not. And people 
answered in most cases that they would like to have such widget. I 
didn't ask why, the reasons may vary. But...

I've looked into the code of new QtLocation module and it's QML 
components and I came to the conclusion that it's not very difficult to 
implement such widget and all another stuff to show map and items on the 
map as Qt widget. But...

I found that such implementation will be tied to the private QtLocation 
headers. I wanted to implement GeoMap and Items as part of the 
QtMWidgets library. But...

I don't want to tie on the private Qt's headers in this library. So I 
can't to implement GeoMap right now. And I don't know what to do.

I want to ask you, folk, and Qt developers.

  * Is it possible to open QtLocation C++ stuff, I mean headers, for 
example, of QGeoMappingManager?

  * Is it possible to implement GeoMap widget in Qt internally and allow 
to choose between QML and Widgets?

  * Is this list good to ask such questions, or better to ask in 
developer's list, and is it ok to ask in developer's list such questions.

Thank you.

Best Regards,
Igor Mironchik.
