I'm adding tooltips to the skins in the 'lmi' branch and came
across another less than ideal situation that I'd like to 
discuss here. Tooltips are available for a radiobox control,
but they can't be used for the individual selections. We have 
many radiobox controls that have more than two selections, so 
a tooltip that has to describe each selection becomes very 
lengthy and, in some cases, doesn't persist long enough to 
read the whole tooltip. 

Ideally, I'd like to have separate tooltips for each selection
in the radiobox control. Is that currently possible and I just
don't see it? If it isn't, is this something you would consider
