Allow export to KML in "Layer to KML" Tool

    Currently this tool only allows you to export to a kmz file.   Our current workflow requires us to tweak the KML code to point at png icons on our webserver.  Because we are currently forced to output a kmz, we have to open the kmz in Google Earth and then save it as a KML file so we can edit the <IconStyle> tags.  Another option is to open the kmz file in some compression software (e.g., WinZip) and then save the "doc.kml" file that's within the kmz, but thats' still an unnecessary step.

    I think it's good that  users have the ability to export kmz files because of the smaller files size.  But it would be nice to be able to output the file to KML as well.
