When working with complex models that contain a lot of information, cramming all of it into list_display columns in admin is sometimes infeasible (e.g. the grid becomes too large or cluttered or the information is just a useful minor detail that is not required in the birds-eye view -- last changed timestamps, editor name etc). Perhaps it makes sense to support tooltip-style popups for additional row-specific detailed information.
Either the title tag or pure-CSS popups could be used for this. However, title is (or was) cut off at 70 characters in Gecko-based browsers, so pure-CSS popups should be used.
list_display_tooltips with similar semantics to list_display looks like a sensible way of declaring them.
Will attach a patch eventually.
