Eli, thanks for your responses. I'm sorry that I didn't make the original bug 
report clear enough.

As a user, I would like to have a way to globally configure how long tooltips 
produced by Emacs are displayed.
At the moment, Emacs does not provide such a default. tooltip-hide-delay is 
close, but it does not cover all tooltips.

As a user, I don't like it to have to customize every package that use tooltips 
to just to ensure a consistent default.
