Download and installation script

The following bash script downloads, converts and installs all of the 25 paleogeographic maps (completely with icon...). Unfortunately they are all displayed as a seperate map (that is, you'll have 25 more maps afterwards...), and the only way I could figure out to sort them properly were padded numbers (years). Don't know if and how it is possible to present them as different layers in a single theme, or if there is a not hardcoded way to sort map. It also would be nice if marble were somehow able to "shift through time", similiar to the clouds or sun layers. But it's well worth it just like it is now. Quite interesting (600 million years ago the Aussies would have been the only ones with dry feet.)
