Currently, when you change the value of the gain or mix knobs in an audio module, the value of that parameter as you change it is displayed in the top-part of the module where the module name would normally be displayed.

So what if...

when your mouse hovered over whatever various UI widgets are in your module, the @description text for the parameters/messages/etc was displayed in that area. I like this better than hints (see previous email) and I like it better than using the Clue window or another module because the text is still displayed reasonably close to where the mouse is. Some @description text is quite long, so we would probably truncate to the first sentence, which would be subject to Twitter-like limitations.
