[ka-Map-users] Query tool question (make it resizable?)

I don't believe I've seen a query tool that works this way before.   
You could probably modify the existing query tool to do what you  
want, but it will be tricky to make it moveable/resizeable.  It would  
be trivial to leave the query rectangle on the map after mouseup and  
to provide a clear capability.  I would start there and then go on to  
see if you can make it resize.
