Making this computation platform independent will become a non-issue
once the code is fixed and tested.  But currently it is still not.
What do you think about fixing the meaning of `tooltip-y-offset'?
Currently `tooltip-y-offset' defines the Y offset relative to the
bottom of the tooltip frame.  But all similar options in Emacs define
offsets relative to the top (in top-left pairs).  Even `tooltip-y-offset'
allows alternative specifications in the frame parameter `top', which
differs from the current behavior of `tooltip-y-offset' which uses
the bottom of the tooltip frame.  This can be fixed by using the same
code for computing x and y.
