I'm not sure that you've followed the whole thread.  The feature of being able
to display help messages and GUD variable values in the echo area has *not*
been removed.  On the other hand, the variable tooltip-use-echo-area has been
made obsolete because it involves an ugly hack that intertwines the code in
tooltip.el and gud.el.  The associated doc string describes how to get the
same functionality without it.  It can't be that useful: only users of
Semantic noticed that there had been a change.
