I think all the above ideas are great but the use of a single timeline 'widget' per se leaves behind a great space saving opportunity - incorporating the timeline into the folder tree renderer itself. In the sample screen at the moment (http://www.digikam.org/?q=node/285) there is a large amount of wasted whitespace to the right of the month labels in the tree. 

I would suggest using this space to render smaller versions of the timeline widget for each folder. This would allow users to view their -whole- photo collection as a quasi-density chart by date. You could still provide the current timeline widget under construction to show more detail but it would be great to have all of them showing in simplified form to the right of the leaves on the folder tree:

2007   .....|..|...|.....
