        Specifies how to display a message whenever you move to the
        widget with either `widget-forward' or `widget-backward' or move
        the mouse over it (using the standard `help-echo' mechanism).
        The argument is either a string to display or a function of one
        argument, the widget, which should return a string to display.

This strictly speaking means that the fact that forms which evaluate
to strings do not work, is actually _not_ a bug after all.  But such
help-echo's _are_ going to be shown on mouse-over regardless.  So why
not make them admissible values for widget help-echo's anyway and make
<tab> and S-<tab> show them too by putting in those two eval's ?
