KML Superoverlay driver cannot handle Folders

The driver does not recognize the Region and GroundOverlay entries placed under a Folder node. See

I debugged and modified the driver so that it can handle the attached KML. I've chosen the solution with the least amount of changes, and it is not proved against any standards. Use it up if you think so.

Thanks for the patch. I gave it a quick try, but it breaks opening the which is used in the regression test. Could you correct it so that it still works with it ?
