Announcement text:

 The goal of this package is the simplest possible provision of
 map images (OpenStreetMap, Google Maps and Google Street View 
 are supported). In the simplest case, the specification of an
 address is sufficient. The package loads the map using the
 \write18 feature, which you must activate to use this package.
 The image will be downloaded by an external Lua script. You can 
 use this script also from the command line.
