Why did you move the comments from end-of-line to prior-line?
Comments on fields are much easier to read when they're end-of-line.
M-; will make them all line up again (or use tabs if you're not using
Emacs). If a few lines got too long, then you can make their comments
start just one space after the ; instead of lining them up, so the
lines still fit in under 80 columns. If some are still too long, you
can probably abbreviate the text a little. Only if all that fails
should you move a comment from end-of-line to prior-line.
