tool-tip default

Since the tool-bar is turned on by default, I think tool-tips ought to
be as well.

While recently trying out `emacs -q', I sat there for about 30 seconds
with my mouse over one of the tool-bar buttons, waiting for something to
pop up (without realizing that in fact an appropriate message was being
displayed in the echo area).  I suspect a lot of people raised on
M$-ware will do the same thing...

[I also think transient-mark mode, and global-font-lock mode, ought to
be turned on by default as well, but at least those are easily enabled
from the `Options' menu, and aren't as immediately useful as tool-tips

Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra.  Suddenly it flips over,
pinning you underneath.  At night the ice weasels come.  --Nietzsche
