Reminds me of the suggestion I had a while ago to make such help
partly automatic (at least when a `local-map' or `keymap' property
is present, but maybe also when a `mouse-face' is present).

Having it automatic saves work from the coder, but also allows the help
text to be different in the `point-over' than in the `mouse-over' case.
