Moving from C++ to C# one of many annoying "features" is the need to use the the word  "public" in front of public variables.
I like to comment my code at the same time limit my typing workload.

In this C# Example:  I can limit my need to type public by declaring the public variables on the same line using a comma separator.

public int A; // comment about variable A
public int X1, Y1, Z1, W1, T1; // comments about Variables X1, Y1, Z1


Where as in C++ I can use one public statement and neatly comment each variable.

public:
       int X1;  // this is a comment about variable X1
       int Y1;  // this is a comment about variable Y1
       int Z1;  // this is a comment about variable Z1
       int W1; // this is a comment about variable W1
       int T1;  // this is a comment about variable T1

My Question:
Is there a way to group public variable in C# ?

Maybe I'm just to picky!

Whereas I'd make the counterargument: in C# (and Java, for that matter) looking at any declaration I immediately know the scope of the variable, which is of more immiediate utility than almost any comment I've ever seen on a variable.  (-:

Granted that's overstating it a little, but there is a good reason for requiring each variable be explicitly declared.

If it's absolutely necessary to split them up, just put the variables on separate lines:

public int X1,
                  X2,
                  X3
;
