Well, doesn't FPC evaluates expressions - so why can't a debugger? Also,
couldn't Michael new Expression Parser help here?

As for the properties issue. That's a personal preference of the 'core
team' as far as I know. Delphi and Kylix supports debugging Properties
(even with the "possible" data changing issue) - yet I haven't seen a
single posting of a Delphi developer complaining about that possible data
change issue. The pros far outweigh the cons.

Hopefully Dmitry could solve these problems with Duby. I haven't evaluated
Duby is some months, but last time I did check, it made good progress. I
guess it's time I get another code update.
