Title: Get id from ::Plotchart::DrawTimePeriod

I'd like to bind some events to the TimePeriod rectangle. I see the description of the function that draws this time period, and see that it returns none.

# DrawTimePeriod --
#    Draw a period
# Arguments:
#    w           Name of the canvas
#    text        Text to identify the "period" item
#    time_begin  Start time
#    time_end    Stop time
#    colour      The colour to use (optional)
# Result:
#    None
# Side effects:
#    Data bars drawn in canvas

And I need to perform things like...
set s [::Plotchart::createTimechart .c "1 january 2004"  "31 december 2004" 4]
set spring [$s period "Spring" "1 march 2004" "1 june 2004" green]
.c bind $spring <ButtonPress> [list handleClick %W %x %y]

By the way, the GanttChart allows me to bind events to the tasks...
set s [::Plotchart::createGanttchart .c "1 january 2004" \
        "1 march 2005" 2]

set spring [$s task "" "1 march 2004" "1 june 2004" 0]
.c bind [lindex $spring 2] <ButtonPress> [list handleClick %W %x %y]
