Some user (unfortunately don't remember who) provided a valuable insight into 
this. We probable need "smart tooltips", like in Visual Studio, so you can 
browse complex types by clicking "+" markers in tooltip. That requires custom 
tooltip class (even in Qt4), and last time I tried to add variable tooltip I 
made it work except that QToolTip was a bit unreliable. With custom class, 
I'm sure it can be done.

To clarify -- Kate misses the code to show tooltip, but it has the code to 
notify then tooltip has to be shown.
