#17049: Add hoverIntent to new AdminBar

 I would love to see some sort of hoverIntent effect applied to the new
 AdminBar. I took a look at the source and noticed that a timeout of 500
 milliseconds is already applied to some of the menus in the AdminBar
 onmouseout. It would be great to see the same sort of timeout applied
 onmouseover; keeping the menus from appearing immediately on hover
 (especially with the timeout applied to the onmouseout event).

 While I love the added features found in the AdminBar, it is far too
 annoying for me most of the time, when I move from the address bar in my
 browser to somewhere on the page, and items in the AdminBar start popping
 open automatically (then wait up to half-a-second before going away).

 I am planning to investigate this to see if I can come up with a patch;
 but I thought I'd submit the enhancement request just in case someone out
 there already had a simple patch in mind. Thanks.
