Thanks for this patch.

So, I appreciate what this is trying to do, but I have great difficultly 
convincing myself that this is the right approach.

We don't need to resort to a tooltip for any other shortcut, because 
there is an established visual design language to indicate those.  I 
guess we just need to find what's consistent with pre-existing ways of 
indicating this kind of behaviour in other applications.
