Tal, I agree with you.

The debugger is an execution controller with an optional current-frame viewer updated whenever execution is paused.  It displays both name and value.  I believe a current PR addresses the issue of value representations being indefinitely long and possibly overflowing the space allotted.

The stack viewer can view any frame on the stack, but only after an exception.  At least currently, on Windows, it omits value names. And there are other issues (#24790).  The debugger viewer and stack viewer should be combined with the best features of each (new issues).

In the meanwhile, I finished PR and merged.
