Double tooltips

I see that while in Debug area, hovering over a variable gives me two
tooltips -- one from contextbrowser and another from debugger, which
is clearly not nice. The contextbrowser tooltip is created in
kdevplatform/plugins/contextbrowser/contextbrowser.cpp, see viewCreated
and textHintRequested. 

Does anybody have any opinion how this should be fixed? It seems ideal to
- Make each View aware of the Area it belongs too
- Make each Area specify a list of 'tooltip providers' it allows
- When installing tooltip handler, check if the area of the view allows
what we're trying to install.
