If you know how to do this nicely, that'd be fine.  I've got plenty of places 
where tool tips would be useful (like say, for the namespace search tabs 
which are currently just always gigantic).

In that case, we should move the new function to gnunet_util.h and probably 
have an option in the configuration file (gnunet.conf) to turn on/off human 
readable.  "-h" is used for help, the option does not sound like something 
anyone would want to mess with frequently, so having it (just) in gnunet.conf 
(as an "ADVANCED" option) should be good enough.  We need to avoid confusing 
users with too many options that don't make much of a difference.
