Not mentioning the target at all is probably the best solution in most
cases. I am open for other suggestions but I think that using "layer /
channel" is more confusing than helpful.

One that goes across, say, half of your screen? The length of the
blurb will become less of a problem if we also allow to have it
displayed as a tooltip.

I hope that Mitch and you can sort out the issues with this patch. I
know that Mitch and me agree that it is a good idea in general. So we
definitely want to have your feature in 2.4, it's just a matter of
solving the remaining issues with the patch.

However I would love if work on the blurbs and action tooltips could
start as soon as possible. So if there are any other volunteers,
please don't be afraid to speak up. I am sure that we can arrange
things to that multiple people can work on this.
