If you have any work to do which can be separated from the rest, does
not block your further work etc. I happily offer my help in implementing
it (and testing it of course).

One thing was on my mind when I thought about tooltips: IIRC you
currently need to place an EventBox around some widgets (X-window-less
IIRC) to get a tooltip, perhaps this can be avoided in a redesign
(perhaps mouse movement bandwidth outweights the benefits, I don't know).

EventBoxes tend to hide my nice background graphics rather badly, so I
have to chose between background graphics and tooltips :-(.
