Maybe we could have a "tree-state" customize option here:

- always show tooltips
  (generate a tooltip with the same text as the menu item if
   no explicit tooltip is specified)
- show available tooltips
  (the current functionality - show tooltips is available)
- no tooltips
  (never show tooltips for menu items).
