Committed a nice patch from Robert Gruber which adds this functionality. Right mouse click on watch variable to access the hex/dec toggle option for this watch variable.
Also commited global output radix option for the debugger that affects all output. See debugger options.

Jon, you are right that "set output radix 16" doesn't refresh the screen when you type it in the gdb window, but doesn't switching between frames refresh the watch vars? (I can't remember). Might be a work around.

Two things left to do on this before it's closed
. kdevelop sends "whatis /x varname" when a watch var is in hex mode. This is incorrect - it should send "whatis varname" (an existing bug and NOT caused by Robert's patch I might add :-)
. changing the output radix globally doesn't refresh the current output. It should.

Possibly we should also add octal to the RMB on the watchvar (but how many will want it hmmm?)
