Custom tooltip for v3

v3 BoundsBox library provides constructors to create a rectangular overlay by LatLngBounds or by LatLng plus km-dimension (also miles or nautic miles). You can also overlay images that scale with zoom.

It is still missing an overlay with pixel dimensions. For tooltips and other labeling. It is coming.

I haven't included the 'tiptool' to BoundsBox library yet. There are a few things still under development.

I am impressed with 'universional' concept of a library that Paul Kulchenko has implemented. He has written some impressive Canvas experiments that work with v2 and v3 with one and only script.

That is the way that Google Maps API libraries should be written.

Looking at your v2 sidebar with markers/categories experiment - Great work - seems to be very popular!

The v2 api does not seem to allow much for options with the balloon infowindow - Unless you have come up with a solution.

Have you re-coded this script to v3? Will v3 give more options as to balloon size, graphics?

Best regards.
