I have to agree with Owen's earlier comments on the callback-based approach

   I'm not really enthused about a callback-based approach here. It
   seems simple at first glance, but I think it would get pretty complex
  for the case where tooltip texts or tooltip areas change dynamically.
  (For tooltip areas, think scrolling in a GtkTreeView.)

Unless we can find a way to handle
  - Ctrl-F1 keyboard mode
  - programmatically triggered tooltips
  - grouping (as for e.g. the toolbar example)
  - dynamic tooltips
Kris proposal (based on Owens ideas) seems more complete.
