I would like to inspect the variable's name/value on the stack at a specific 
point in time for diagnostic purposes, I don't want to change their value. I 
don't think that should be allowed anyway :-)

I had a look to the API's Javadoc, my understanding is that I could to get to 
the StackTraceElement array with it . That is OK to see the 
calls' stack but it does not provide any API to inspect what is actually on the 
stack in terms of variable's <name, value> pair.

Did I miss anything ?
