A fast feature before the release: As Pau requested during a workshop to the 
Barcelona Media audio team, now the type of the port is shown on the port 
tooltip. Mandatory screenshot:


By default it uses the C++ type, but you can override it by providing a second 
argument when registering the port color for the type.

It is a pity that tooltips are hand made by us and they don't support html. 
Html would enable drawing a square with the port type color and writting the 
type with cursive instead of the 'Type:' prefix. 

Also on the usability point of view, port highlighting should be limited to 
the border to keep the port type color reference while hovering it. Any 
opinion on that?
