Summary: New Feature request - multi-category timeline links for
                    wikipedia articles
           Product: Wikimedia
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: crosswiki
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Interwiki links

I am envisioning something that would look like a tapesty or mesh.  It would
have multipule timelines in various categories like science, music, religion,
political, with sub categories for each like Euorpean music, Italian music,
composers, instrument makers, european religions, far eastern religions, new
world religions, etc.  Each Wikipedia article would be linked to one or more
timeline(s).  When viewing the timeline it can be expanded to show the various
lines and one could move up and down the mesh to view articles relating to
events that took place in the same time frame.  When viewing a specific
composer, moving up and down through the same time frame would allow viewing
composers of the same time frame, musical styles and compostions of the same
time frame, instruments and makers, significant scientific discoveries,
political events, events in other regions of the world, etc.  In all it would
be a way to look at information in the context of historical events and compare
events in various regions of the world during the same time frame.
