Could this be a use case for typing.Annotated?


The syntax is a bit arduous; I'd be in favor of thinking through ways to make it easier to write. But the basic functionality already exists; there's no reason to duplicate it with another language feature.


Whoops sorry, forgot the @dataclass decoration:

In [10]: @dataclass
    ...: class A:
    ...:     """Docstring for class A."""
    ...:     x: Annotated[int, "Docstring for x"]
    ...:     y: Annotated[bool, "Docstring for y"] = True
