[vtkusers] vtkInteractorStyle

I have been trying to figure out a method of doing what I need for the
interactor, but can't seem to figure it out.
The app I am developing has the following requirements:

1. Rubberband region zooming
2. Mouse over actor events (needs to show the name of the object when
the mouse is moved over the actor)
3. Have pan and picking still work.
3. Must be in C++

So I have been looking at TkInteractor.tcl for the rubberbanding and
have it working.  The question I have is how to do the mouse over
event.  I am using vtkInteractorUser and it seems I can only do the
mouse over event by calling StartUserInteraction, but if I do that then
panning and picking won't work.  Is there a way to have both
functionalities without having to code a whole new style of Interactor?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
