Defines functions kml_lines

Documented in kml_lines

#' Read Lines out of a KML file.
#' 
#' @inheritParams kml_points
#' @return A \link[tibble:tibble]{tibble} containing the \code{folder} (layer), 
#' \code{name}, \code{description}, \code{styleUrl} and geographic coordinates 
#' (\code{longitude}, \code{latitude} and \code{altitude}) of the \emph{first}
#' LineString contained within each Placemark element of the KML source. 
#' Other Placemark elements will be ignored.
#' 
#' If there are no LineStrings in the KML source, the function returns 
#' \code{NULL}.
#' If there are no Folders in the KML source, the \code{folder} variable will be
#' filled with \code{NA}.
#' @note The function only extracts the \strong{first} LineString out of each
#' Placemark element. As a result, multi-LineStrings built into <MultiGeometry> 
#' elements are \emph{not} fully supported: only the first LineString will be 
#' present in the results.
