I think this is a really good idea. I can see a good use for it in
applications newly installed (as a first time run tool) to direct the
user using the software.

E.g. "Click here to being your search" over/under a search entry box by
using the gtk_tooltip_window_show_for_widget() API even if the entry
hasn't actually got any focus.
