It would be good to expose the implicit type information for "var" declarations.

Consider the following snippet:
var test = 1;

If you hover over "var", quick info should be displayed with the following text:
"struct System.Int32
Represents a 32-bit signed integer."

Resharper (and perhaps native Visual Studio) does this. It's terribly useful, especially in the case of foreach statements.
