Since 0.6.48 a preview of hash content is displayed in the Variables view in debugger. Currently, the keys are sorted alphabetically and up to 10 keys are displayed. This feature would be much more useful if the user could also determine the key order by hinting EPIC at the "important" keys that need to be displayed first, for example keys that identify the data structure in some way ("id", "name" etc.)
Proposed enhancement: a new preference "Debug preview keys" in which a comma-separated ordered list of keys can be entered (default value: blank = keep current behavior, leave keys sorted alphabetically). The order of keys displayed when expanding the hash can be also controlled by this same preference.
