Summary description:  Download OpenStreetMap maps for use in documents

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, it is is sufficient to
 specify an address.. 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.
