I think that's an excellent idea -- it would yield much more consistent
results than the current method.  One thing I noticed about the windows
tooltips is that they pop up neatly aligned with the edge of the menu entry
or whatever, whereas the emacs ones seem placed sort of randomly (presumably
they're at a constant offset from the mouse pointer's position when the
tooltip popped up, but the offset from the actual menu item is much more

Perhaps it would also be good to pass a hint as to the preferred side of
rectangle to put the tooltip on (which I guess would be ignored if there
wasn't enough space).


P.S.  All information contained in the above letter is false,
      for reasons of military security.
