Anchor and Shield work quite well! Suitcase is okay, but seems to say "pack this up so I can transport it somewhere" which could (wrongly) make sense in some cases. The Chain can look like a web link and the Database one doesn't visually say anything.

Yikes. So this patch sits here for two years and then is closed because of a mailing-list comment by Ton.

Probably best to follow the evolution of this task. It started off as showing only icons, instead of the labels, as viewed in "StatisticsIcons.png". There is a later patch, StatisticsIcons4.diff, that has the ability to show icons, text, both, or none as can be seen in "sample6.png". Worried that the icon display was a concern I made a simplified patch, StatisticsString.diff, that *only* makes changes to the text string as can be viewed in "StatisticsStringOnly.png".

Harley Acheson (harley) updated subscribers of T37478: Improve Tooltips to provide more information.

Not quite on topic for adding "additional information", but the following is a mockup I did quite a while ago. It uses only the current information from the tooltips, but changes text alignment, color, ordering, and adds a horizontal rule to make them a bit easier to follow:
