issue #2031: show object name when hovering tree view
shoogen wrote: Description:
show the name of an object when hovering the object in the tree view. This can be done in the status line or as a tool tip for the tree view.
I would suggest to use the status line and display the object type and the python object proxy class, if applicable.
Edit: issue #2031 resolved in git commit 60ae927fcbae5a873045551206a68d6b12c36d02

Showing the internal name of an object is not possible without using a property class.

I like chrisb's comment

`Or else it doesn’t, you know. The name of the song is called “Haddocks’ Eyes.”‘
`Oh, that’s the name of the song, is it?’ Alice said, trying to feel interested.
`No, you don’t understand,’ the Knight said, looking a little vexed. `That’s what the name is called. The name really is “The Aged Aged Man.”‘
`Then I ought to have said “That’s what the song is called”?’ Alice corrected herself.
`No, you oughtn’t: that’s quite another thing! The song is called “Ways and Means”: but that’s only what it’s called, you know!’
`Well, what is the song, then?’ said Alice, who was by this time completely bewildered.
`I was coming to that,’ the Knight said. `The song really is “A-sitting On A Gate”: and the tune’s my own invention.’
