Add time labels to revision bars MOCK NEEDED IF REALIZED
Open, Stalled, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Problem: Sometimes articles are changed a lot of times within a short time frame. In that case, people want to know easily which are the revisions that belong to that time frame, to just look at those.
While this is possible to define in the history view, the revision slider does not offer any help about it just yet.

Solution:
On the revision slider, ever xth bar has a label indicating the date of the change.

Background: This is part of adding the revision slider to the revision diff page. The revision slider is a feature that adds a visualization of all revisions to the compare screen.
The revision slider was originally prototyped by the WMF Community Tech team and then handed over to the WMDE TCB team, as it is also a solution to fulfill a wish of the German Community Wishlist: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Umfragen/Technische_W%C3%BCnsche_2015/Artikel#Anzeige_aller_Bearbeitungskommentare_im_Diff

@Danny_B thanks for looking after the tickets. However, right now we don't even know if they will ever be realized, so I think it's better to ping the design teams once we reached the stage of knowing that :)

The idea reported here was more to highlight different days, like it can be done sometimes on some calendars, where the week-end days are in a different color.

A similar request in the problem field was reported in https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Uafmytgypbuj7qjg and should be evaluated if we deal with that task.

At that URL, see also the quick sketch I made of what a solution (just slightly different from the one stated in the task description) might look like.
