If we're taking votes, respectfully count mine as -1 on using tooltips for this.

Labels within code are most useful when visible. If we need to read the code carefully enough to figure out where we should aim the mouse, then aim the mouse, then pause waiting for the tooltip to appear, the benefit of labels is diminished.

I use comments, as most others here seem to do too. Quite happy to just keep doing that - it only costs two extra characters ("--"), is simple and flexible, and immediately self-evident when skimming code.

+1 on the tooltip. I also comment end statements in nested loops or control structures, but it gets cluttery when trying to read through the script.

I wonder whether a mouse over tooltip would work just as well. Is this 
something you want to be able to see _all_ the time or just if you get confused 
about where you are?

Hmmm... I think a tooltip could be especially useful for exit and break 
statements in nested conditionals where it's not always obvious at first glance.
