[squeak-dev] Why are balloon texts (tooltips) not relative to the cursor?

...but pinned to the object/morph they explain? Sure, the objects want to
"explain themserlves". :D That's why, I suppose, there is a speech bubble.

However, imagine a bigger morph, where the cursor enters one corner and the
user waits for explanation. The user has to look for the tooltip but is
currently focused on the cursor.

I argue that tooltips should always appear at the users current locus of
attention, which is directly after a hovering action the mouse cursor.

Comments? :)
