Maybe we could create the timeline boxes and modify its x width based
on the substitutions commands available in its related sed file.
Working with the same units to keep the year relation, and defining
some coordinate values as reference for them.

Maybe the bash's date command could be used to automate some things.
Also the basic bash arithmetic could be used. If we reach that, it
could be included in
http://wiki.centos.org/ArtWork/BuildingEnvironment, for all languages

Surely there are other ways (I would like to hear) ... these are just
some initial thoughts.

Do you know if there is some place where the timeline growth be
described in details ?
