Proposed changes

For a feature (braces outline + tooltip), I would appreciate small API changes to the Editor tooltip and scrolling support.

1/ Support for absolutely positioned tooltips. Current ToolTipSupport interface only positioning relative to the caret in the editor. I need absolute positioning, so the tooltip can be nicely aligned with the editor's area. Possibly other popup / roll-out hints could use this positioning, too.

2/ I need to disable scrolling support in tooltips. An unobtrusive way is to extend the NbEditorUI behaviour to accept scrolling policy in the editor Component's clientProperties.

Please see the attached diff. The change is an extension to the editor's capabilities and should not affect existing contracts.
