I would propose to just add an extra input signal
Tooltip ::: SSignal `Of` String
to every widget, like it is currently done for IsEnabled. To make it possible
to have no tooltip at all, we could change this to
MaybeTooltip ::: SString `Of` Maybe String
By the way, I don’t see much point in GTK+ introducing the concept of tooltip
groups. As far as I can see, this helps only in disabling a bunch of
tooltips. But why should one want to do this? So it might be okay, to just
work with one global tooltip group or one group per tooltip. The last one is
probably easier to implement since it frees us from dealing with global
variables or passing a tooltip group around.
