To be fair, the submitter of the patchasked for clarification on Miller's ambiguous 
expression of his problem, and IOhannesrepeated the question four months later.  
The last response before closing the patch comes five years later before the patch 
is closed.

The patch was also refactored and submitted again, which I noticed and refactored it yet 
again, doing most of the changes on the tcl end and making the tip content generate 
automatically so that all internal objects and most externals give useful feedback without 
anyone having to make any further changes or even do any work.

So I don't know, maybe this development process works, and by the time the next tooltips 
patch rolls around you'll be able to check your email within the tip, and build patches inside 
the tip with infinite undo/redo, as well as initbang/closebang within the tip.
