#35 Decade/Year should appear as single hierarchical facet

Steve Toub

Combine Decade and Year facets so they appear as if they are single hierarchical date browse.

http://orange.sims.berkeley.edu/cgi-bin/flamenco.cgi/nobel/Flamenco gives an example of how this should appear to users.

    Users are still offered both decade and year as breakdown, but now if a user select the decade breakdown
    and picks a single decade the breakdown is automatically directed to the list of years below that decade
    I think this is a reasonable compromise

    Sounds good. And looks good on nocoma.

    I might consider removing the year facet altogether and just depending on the decade facet to get there.

    I hope the visual designers take another pass at some point. It'd be nice if the facet values were exposed (for more than one facet) by default, got rid of the iframes on the facets, etc.
