Evaluate Expression in the debugger

The p|x is button is basically evaluating an arbitrary expression and displaying it.
IMHO if there is a selection in the editor it should default to evaluate that expression so I can easily check the value of a variable by highlighting it and clicking on p|x.
Currently if the expression is $something it uses 'p' and if it is @something it uses 'x'. This isn't good if $something is already a reference. Probably this should behave in a clever way and first check if $something is a reference or not. If it is a reference it should use x.
Probably it should also be renamed to "Evaluate expression" and have a nice icon. The mouse-over explanation can be extended to explain the way it behaves.
