[R] Visualising multiple temporal periods each with an associated value

I want to visualise temporal events as rectangles, one side of the
rectangle being the length of the event, the other being the size of an
integer variable.  The position of the rectangle along the time axis
would be determined by the time of the even, the position on the other
axis is essentially arbitrary. This would look like the graph in the
lower right of the following image:


I can probably cobble something together in raw R to do this, but I
assume that this kind of plot has a name and that there may already be
packages to do this.

Can anyone suggest what one would call this sort of plot?
