RequestInspector creates a custom Request Inspector tab, which is used to view or edit aspects of a request. It is displayed as a tab in the request editor.

Generally, this extension is combined with custom RequestFilter or RequestTransport to define specific aspects of a request.

The inspectorId property defines the name of the inspector.

The annotated class must implement the EditorInspector interface.
