Well, you don't actually have to use the tooltip. It wouldn't interfere with your current method and would enhance the editor for those who don't want the clutter.

Best of both worlds.

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.
