This configuration affect all tooltips created with PMA_createqTip() function. I added this configuration both for user preference and setup page.

I took the freedom to improve PMA_createqTip() in my branch:

- Style information has moved into 2 css classes that are now defined
in theme_right.css.php
- The tooltip now looks more similar to the initial tooltip you've
built (that was quite difficult I have to say)
- I've removed the dHint class from theme_right.css.php (it was used
by the old tooltip code)

Currently I just copied the style to the original theme, anyone in the
mood to make a fitting look for it?

About your configuration, I think you should rather set a global
variable like "hideTooltips = true;" inside messages.php for now.
Creating a <span class="no_hint"> element in header.inc.php and then
checking for its existence sounds like a not too good workaround.

Thanks for building a reusable solution,
