Here's a patch that adds a 'title' tag to all of the checkboxes in the
admin/access grid. When you roll over the checkboxes in most browsers a
tool-tip box will pop up with information about what each checkbox is.

"anonymous user : edit own blog"
"authenticated user : post comments"
"admin : administer filters"

On a site with many roles and many modules, it becomes very easy to
scroll away from the table headers, so this is essential for figuring
out what you're clicking. It doesn't solve all of the admin/access page
usability problems, but it does make the page a lot more usable.

Little patch. Big help.

Coding style needs work (incorrect use of spaces).  Shouldn't these
strings be translatable?

This should be better.

By 'incorrect use of spaces', do you mean spacing around the array keys
and values? I've fixed that and the $perm (permission) value now gets
translated. Role names aren't translated elsewhere on the admin/access
page, so I've left $name (role name) untranslated.

Anyone want to review my code?

Rerolled patch against current HEAD. Looks good to me and seems to be
pretty useful :)
