- Debugger:  Watch values of properties of classes/objects even when 
they have a getter and/or are string

Those above, for me, would improve Lazarus 10000%. More than any 
improvement in package management, IDE or changes in language. For me, 
they are must.

These below would be a good improvement
- Debugger:  Setting values of properties of classes/objects even when 
they have a setter and/or are string (not as important as watching, but 
very important as well)
- Debugger:  Watch values of variables in nested procedures.
- Debugger: better dealing with generics

Amazing enough, there is no project in then foundation related to 
improve debugger. Am I the only one who thinks that poor debugger is a
