Could I request some mouse-over tooltips that give the expansions of the abbreviations on the labels of the tickboxes in the table-columns editor?

I have guessed most of them but a couple in particular I really don't know - and I suspect I wouldn't be the only one to not pick up on the abbreviations.  What we have (and what I think they are):

* PK (Primary Key)
* NN (Not Null)
* BIN (??)
* UN (Unique Constraint?)
* ZF (??)
* AI (Auto Increment)

Even if the tooltips don't tell you the meaning of those items, they could at least give me a starting point to find out what they mean.

How to repeat:
N/A - see above

Thank you for the feature request.

The correct expansions of those acronyms (just for reference having spoken with the guys about it in IRC):

PK  - Primary Key
NN  - Not Null
BIN - Binary
UN  - Unsigned
UQ  - Create/remove Unique Key
ZF  - Zero-Filled
AI  - Auto Incremenent
