FEATURE REQUEST: Tooltip displays the field summary.

Editor

-

-

Please add a tooltip attribute that displays the field's summary in the inspector.

For example:

/// <summary>
/// The user's name to display in the UI.
/// </summary>
[TooltipSummary]
public string userName;

This will display "The user's name to display in the UI." tooltip in the inspector.

Why it's needed:
It will make it easier to add summaries and tooltips for the fields. Removing the need to add a summary and a tooltip manually.

    I'd like Unity being able to parse the summary tag on it's own to create the tooltip, or the other way to only have a single line for both documentation and editor to not overload the file
