Binary package hint: f-spot

I love how pressing "v" while hovering over a photo summons a bigger version of it with its comment, date and filename. It's hardly discoverable, though.

Could they appear as tooltips when you hover the mouse over a photo? How I would ideally have it work:

-If you hover the mouse over a photo for a couple seconds you enter "tooltip mode".
-In this mode, a tooltip showing a bigger thumbnail, comment, date and name appears. If you move the mouse from one photo to the next, tooltips keep appearing for each photo hovered over.
-Tooltip mode ends if you move the mouse out of the area where pictures are shown.
