[Interest] suppressing tooltips of all widgets

Hi all,

what is the best way to suppress tool tips for all widgets in an app?
I have been asked to implement a user preference for showing tool tips 
and am reluctant to modify every single widget to check the preference 
before showing the tooltip.

I had hoped that I can maybe intercept the QHelpEvent on the top level 
widget, but that doesn't catch the child widget's events.

I also looked at intercepting topLevelWidget.childEvent(), but that is 
not recursive, so wouldn't catch all the nested widgets (and would 
probably lead to performance issues as well).

Is there any way to intercept a any tool tip even from anywhere in the app?
