Status in GNOME Activity Journal: Fix Released

Bug description:
I suggest that the calendar / histogram widget be modified to support scrubbing, where the user could click and then drag with the mouse to browse through dates very quickly. Here are some reasons to justify the idea:

 * The calendar / histogram widget currently reacts when the user presses with the mouse, and most widgets like this seem to support some kind of click + drag interaction. (For example, menus).
 * The way the widget interacts with the rest of the interface is reminiscent of a scroll bar, which behaves in the way I suggest.
 * Repeatedly clicking is not ergonomic, but there is presently no other way to scan through events in detail. This would provide one way of doing so.
