Google Earth and Exoplanets

Google Earth has a most excellent plug-in for exoplanet fans - a plugin for the sky view that displays the over 200 explanets discovered so far:

You'll need to first download Google Earth to use it (version 5.0 at the time of writing this post). If you do not already have Google Earth, you can download it at:

Enjoy!

Are they going to ever place the COROT, KEPLAR, SWEEPS, OGLE, or WASP exoplanets on the list?

Are they going to ever place the COROT, KEPLAR, SWEEPS, OGLE, or WASP exoplanets on the list for Google Sky. I love the program, very accurate star locations, just want to not have to manually enter the other 300 planets into the program by way of notes :)
