Suggestion on new feature for the override method dialog

When you press CTRL+O to override a method, there are checkboxes for inserting @Override and copy JavaDoc. One nice addition to this dialog would be a checkbox for inserting {@inheritDoc} instead of copying the whole doc from the parent. This feature would be useful if you are overriding a method for adding new features, and want to add a few lines to the old documentation.
