Beable to Group variables

Status: New

When there are a lot of variables defined an Sequence / Sequence File, it would be nice to beable to group them to help use and readability.

Can't you do this already by inserting container properties? If you mean something different than this, please elaborate.

A similar action to a container but I just want it to be some sort of label that identifies a group of variables that can be expanded or closed down (hence the + sign). I dont want to make containers. I want the variable to be still know as Locals.Resource1 for example. It would only be used in the Variables window as seen in my post.
