Ebuild for simplekml-0.8.1

I have create a new ebuild for the Python module simplekml.

From the homepage (

simplekml is a python package which enables you to generate KML with as little effort as possible.

At the time of making this package nothing was available (at least I could not find anything) that could create KML files easily. You needed a lot of bloated code to even create a simple point. This is understandable because the KML standard is quite extensive, but what if you just work with the simple elements of KML like Document, Folder, Point, LineString and Polygon? This package supports those elements and more (MultiGeometry, Overlays, NetworkLinks, Models, gx:Tracks and gx:MultiTracks) with advanced styling. 

The ebuild was tested on amd64 and x86.

The ebuild in sunrise was outdated and unmaintained, so it got removed.
