  IIRC It's new, thanks to Kåre

  +1 Qt has the nice feature to show info text in a QStatusBar IIRC, unfortunately has Kate a different concept. It would be great to have such a bar in Kate/Every-KDE-Application where you can somehow redirect all tool-tips. I used this in my wpaCute to avoid tool-tips. The only drawback is that the text may not fit into the too narrow window.

  Such button sounds to me not bad. 
  Because regex search boxes are often used may that best to have a KSearchWidget with such a button. If that's asking too much may your button at least added to KTexteditor and also used in this plugin. This button should of cause not only show the info, but a window which stays open and where you can select stuff like from the context menu.
