[Interest] QtLocation MapPolyLine and MouseArea

Yes with anchors.fill:parent, Pressed/Released works only if the mouse 
is exactly on the line, while hover seems to use the bounding rect of 
the polyline...

But anyway with containmentMask: polyline, all is OK and hover occurs 
only exactly on the line.

The only thing one could hope for is a possibility to make the mouse 
area a bit thicker than the line width, because with thin lines it is 
difficult to be exactly on it.
