Enhancements to the debugger

I posted the following feature requests. Feel free to comment, but the basic gist is that I think (have thought in the past, and continue to think in the future), that the debugger needs some more polish to put it on equal footing with the editor.

Describes an enhancement request to allow tracking the state changes to member variables between arbitrary breakpoints. Something that would be useful when trying to focus on only those member variables of an object that have changed.

Describes something that has irritated me for a while. Why can't we see the results of an evaluated expression in a tooltip window for an arbitrary selection. Why must we open a separate window, disrupting the workflow.
