Hover states for charts #43

Add hover states to the lines on the charts so that it's easy to tell which variation is which by hovering on a line. Something like this: http://projects.flowingdata.com/life-expectancy/

Hovering over a variation in the table should probably also activate a hover state in the chart for the corresponding line.

Not necessary for initial launch.

A bit more detail about how this should work:

  • Hovering over a particular line should give that line a visually differentiated active state (similar to the example linked to above).
  • Hovering over a particular line should also also cause the corresponding variation in the table to get an active state.
  • Alternatively, the same set of active states should be triggered when a user hovers over an experiment name in the table.
  • Hovering over a particular point on the graph should trigger a small popup with the particular datapoint. That data point should also get an active state. See the charts in GA for an example of this: http://cl.ly/image/0S110a3X2O0I

@matthewhudson any particular reason for making the last bullet a separate issue?
