OK, great, that is enough to get me started

Yes, the docstring has a standard formatting convention, eg

    def set_linewidth(self, w):
        Set the line width in points

        ACCEPTS: float value in points
        self._linewidth = w

The inspector will look for lines starting with ACCEPTS: to generate
the property list.  I can hack your example to do the same.

Thanks for the head start!
