Enables an editable description for a post type to display at the top of the post type archive page. Output the description via the native the_archive_description() function that already works with a taxonomy term descriptions.

Automatically works for any theme that uses the_archive_description() (added in WordPress 4.1) like Twenty Fifteen, Twenty Sixteen, Twenty Seventeen or most _s-based themes.
