Comment (by sabreuse):

 Two updated patches attached. 24766.1 contains changes that are identical
 or near-identical to the link text (for example: title text of "edit this"
 on a link that says "edit" isn't an exact match, but it isn't really
 adding much else). 24766.2 is the changes that are more "tooltippy". I
 still favor removing, but if folks feel that those are needed & used as
 help text, then let's discuss.

 For now, I've left out the trickier issues raised by Helen and Nacin,
 including the easter eggs, in the interest of getting some of this
