[Timeline] Add text properties to all fields
Actually, we add the text properties ‘marker’ and ‘entry’ to the whole line, but
the alinging of the table somehow removes the text properties between two
columns.  It is kept in the fields, though, and that is enough.

;;; timeline-tools.el -- Utilities to manipulate org-mode timelines -*- lexical-binding: t -*-
;;; Commentary:
;; This package is a home-grown solution for displaying easily readable
;; overviews of the clock times in my org-agenda files. I find the display
;; easier to read than the clock entries as shown in the agenda with log mode
;; enabled. Some additional editing functions help my with bringing the
;; displayed timelines into the shape as required for work.
;; The main entry point to this package is
;; `timeline-tools-format-timeline-of-day, which when called interactively
;; queries for a date to display, and then formats all clocked times in a nicely
;; aligned org-mode table. Navigation in these tables as well as going forward
;; and backward by day are implemented as shortcuts; see the mode description
;; for more. The clock times are assumed to be non-overlapping, i.e., no point
;; in time is contained in the clock of more than one entry.
;; The main data structures used in this package are as follows:
;; - Timelines: these are lists of entries (see next).
;; - Timeline Entries: structures consisting of start times,
;; end times, durations, headlines, and categories.
;; To retrieve data from timeline entries, corresponding functions are provided.
;; XXX: talk about the way the timeline is generated
;; XXX: talk about filters
;; XXX: This needs some tests
;; XXX: timelines should have some metadata on their own (start time, end time,
;; files)
