Very nice Erik, thanks.
One thing though, the tooltip pops up at mouse point, which could be  
anywhere (in the other monitor, in my case, which is turned off). Also  
there is no way to make the tooltip to disappear before the 3secs, or so,  
have elapsed.
  How about having the output in the minibufer?
