Switching marker color

The color is changed by placing another marker in front of the original one.

The coloring markers are plain with no transparent nor imagemap and defined {clickable:false}. They dont have a shadow.

That kind of marker passes clicks and mouseovers to the fully equipped original marker that lies behind.
