Isn't there a "tooltip" in Jira?

Either I'm blind or this is another bit of (what I think is) missing core functionality. Can you do a tooltip for custom fields? I don't mean the message field that you can get with the toolkit. My users have specifically asked for a tooltip. Preferably hoover, but clickable would work too. I said, if not natively there's probably a plugin for it. But I can't find this functionality anywhere. Is it really not available?

This widget could not be displayed.

Hi Klanz,

It really is not available at this time, see the following thread here at the Atlassian Answers:
how to customize tooltips on dropdown fields

Also, there was New Feature Request for this, but is resolved as won't fix:

Thanks Matheus, that's what I was afraid of. I'll add it to my "needs a plugin developed" list ;)

Yeah... It could be a good tip for Maxim at "What plugin JIRA needed?" though. :)
