[KimDaBa] Minor units on the datebar

Hi Jesper and everyone,
	Just some comments on the very useful datebar:
	The datebar only shows label for mayor intervals (ie. 10 years when using 
years as units) but for minor intervals (1 year in the same case) labels are 
not shown.
	I think the datebar would be easier and faster to read if labels for minor 
intervals where shown on the top. Something like this:

Unit = year (the last digit of the year is shown as minor unit on the top)
       0  1  2  3  4   5  6   7  8  9  0
     |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
2000				    2010 

Unit = month (the month number is shown as minor unit on the top)
      1   2  3  4   5  6  7  8  9  10 11  12   1
     |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |     |     |     |
2004					        2005 

Unit = week (the week of the year is shown as minor unit on the top)
      15 16  17  18  19  20  21  22  23  
     |   |     |    |     |     |     |    |     |     |     
2004-04-05				   2004-06-07 

For days the day of the year would be shown as minor unit.
For hours the hour of the day would be shown as minor unit, and for minuts (or 
10 minuts) just the minuts inside the hour.

I think this would allow to find the intended interval at a first glance.

Greetings,
Rafael
