Using Python 2.7.7 is a classroom setting revealed that this change is sometimes helpful and sometimes problematic.

The big tip windows are VERY distracting during live coding demos and learners are reporting that it breaks their concentration.  On the other hand, it is nice when a function is being encountered for the first time.

I recommend providing a way to turn this feature off or limit it to displaying a given function in full no more than once.
