Comparing with the sawfish tooltips (which also display copious
information), the delay seems about the same. But Gnome panel seems to
pop up tooltips after about half a second, although they usually
consist of two or three words.

I'm undecided myself. Gnome tooltips seem to pop up a bit too quickly,
I might find them a bit annoying if they were bigger and more
demanding of my attention.
