pylint #9848 enhanced docstring support [open] explains how epydoc supports docstrings such as:

class Frobble
    def __init__(self):
        self.important_attribute = None
        """doctring for important_attribute"""

however this code generates W0105 (string statement has no effect). I can certainly disable that warning, but I think it could be nice to have pylint (maybe with an option) not complain for such strings if they happen after an assignment.
