It *was* discussed at great length on emacs-devel. It has *not* been removed
but has an alias: gud-tooltip-echo-area. Normal tooltips and GUD tooltips have
been split, the code for the latter now resides in gud.el. The new behaviour
is documented in the Emacs Manual. It is also described in NEWS.

Why is tooltip-use-echo-area so important?

What code does it break?
