Emacs already has the machinery to support this: if show-help-function
is nil (and it usually is on a tty), the tooltip text is shown in the
echo area.  The Windows port used that functionality before tooltip
support was added to it, and the MS-DOS port still uses it.

So the only thing that's missing is to make the tty mouse support
package inject help-echo events into the Emacs keyboard queue.
Everything else should ``just work''.
