Re: Extending GUD tooltips

    Maybe thats a general rule but one needs to be
    quantitative. tooltip.el is about 500 lines and about half that
    code is for GUD. So maybe 250 lines get loaded in Emacs through
    loadup.el but I'm not sure that it amounts to much in memory. On
    the other hand, gud.el is about 3000 lines, so moving GUD tooltips
    there would make the file over ten times larger than
    tooltip.el. Can you see any practical benefit in doing this?

If this means moving 250 lines into a file of 3000 lines, I don't see
how that would create a problem.  I am not sure what is the best thing
to do here, but one possible benefit from moving the code and making
tooltip.el generic would be modularity and clarity.
