But will this work in Info buffers?  As I remember, there is some
additional text property with a help text such that if point moves
over a character with such property, then a help text is displayed in
the echo area.  Is it so?  This would be useful to display references
to external info manuals in the echo area when references are hidden
in the Info buffer and user navigates between references by keyboard.
