You can set the statustip on the actions, which makes the text show up
in the statusbar (at least in KDE apps, maybe pure Qt needs some
additional hookup there). But AFAIK Qt simply doesn't support Tooltips
on menus at this point, possibly something they could add to 4.6.


You will obey or molten silver will be poured into your ears.
