Documented in kml_read

#' Read a KML file.
#' 
#' @param x A string, a connection, or a raw vector.
#' All inputs accepted by \link[xml2:read_xml]{read_xml} are also accepted, as 
#' long as they are valid KML. This means that URLs and local compressed files,
#' such as \code{.zip} files, are also supported. 
#' 
#' If the source is a local file with a name ending in \code{.kmz}, 
#' \code{kml_read} will treat it as a zipped KML file and will try to read its
#' first file, as listed by \link[utils:unzip]{unzip}.
#' 
#' If the source is a link to Google My Maps, \code{kml_read} will try to 
#' download the most recent version of the map and will then treat it as a 
#' \code{.kmz} file.
#' @param ... Arguments passed to \link[xml2:read_xml]{read_xml}, such as 
#' \code{encoding} or \code{base_url}.
#' See \link[xml2:read_xml]{read_xml} for details.
#' @return A nodeset.
#' @examples
#' # demo data: U.S. Civil War map
#' # see ?states for details
