Yeah, so the idea behind bob is that it will be given a query specification
and then generate an maintain a UI to ask the user for a query that
conforms to this specification. This also means that you can add new UI
elements, such as checkboxes etc. to it. The new thing for the time series
and bar chart widgets will be that they'll have to support setting time
axes as drilldowns, while still offering the option to slice over time and
drill down by something else (maybe not for line graphs).
