If people want it, I imagine it could be included into Pivot.
It is best to add a feature request to JIRA and then see what comments arise.  (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT)

For desktop applications, this kind of tooltip makes sense, but the current tooltip works fine in applets as well.
I imagine that the fade-out transition of the tooltip can probably be handled too with a little effort.

I have attached my hacked together example in case you or anyone else is interested.

The screen looks quite nice indeed.
Do you think this type of implementation will be part of pivot at some
point? Since I need it I have to figure out whether I have to write my own
Tooltip or using yours.

Concerning you last point I had exactly the same idea, and I am going to
give it a try right now for the file browser. I'll let you know what I come
up to.
