I would have done this through the template engine (of course). Any page 
supporting tooltips would include the tooltip template in a set_file call. Then 
you just call parse on the tooltip as needed.

// completely off the cuff
$T = new Template('.');
$T->set_file('mine', 'myfile.thtml');
$T->set_file('tooltip', COM_getTooltipFile());
$T->set_var('abc', $LANG_X['abc']);
$T->set_var('tip', $LANG_X['abctip']);
$T->parse('abctip', 'tooltip');
$T->parse('output', 'mine');

As long as you can override the tooltip template file somewhere it shouldn't be 
a problem.

First, thanks for taking over the autotags plugin.
Second, are you taking over the forum plugin? Have you/the team considered 
creating a public HG repository for the forum?

Is there still time for me to do my COM_newTemplate patch? I should have it 
packaged and attached to the bugtracker in a couple days.
