Debugging and the execution path

Question for Variable Watching folks:
Why do we want a list of watched variables?
I ask this because I only want to see them if their value changes.
What if any value that changes is hilited?
That approach would be far more economical (processing time, and real
estate) AND I think it gives the desired effect--you get to watch any
variable whose value changes after the execution of a line of code.
But maybe I'm missing something. Before you answer that, read the
next paragraph, please.
NOTE for Constellation Users: If you would like to see the approach
to variable watching that I just mentioned, let me know and I'll
email you a non-released version of Constellation that has a free-
standing (non embedded) version of this variable watcher.
