Then use Doxygen if it's a superior product. I presume
it knows how to handle Python code, then?

You asked how to do this in epydoc. Which I use. So I told you.
It works fine for me just like it is.

If you feel it ought to be smarter, you could of course

1) Submit a patch to the author.

2) At least place a feature request on the SF tracker for
   the project.

Epydoc is based on pydoc, and does not interpret comments at all.
Happydoc does (or did), but it did not provide any means to document
class or instance attributes that I could find. It is also regrettably
not being maintained anymore, AFIACT, which is why I switched
to epydoc (although epydoc seems to be a very nice product itself).
