Update OGR KML driver to use libkml

Reported by: condit Owned by: condit

Description

Because the original KML driver was stream based, OGR cannot correctly write out some of the new OGC KML 2.2 constructs (ie writing out the schemas for layers before they are written out). The accommodate the new schema we need to switch the underlying library for writing / reading KML. libkml (http://code.google.com/p/libkml/) is an ideal candidate to accomplish this.

libkml will also make OGR read/write KMZ. Do I see this right?
