 they work when the context menu is shown and actions are bound to some
I'll have a look how try to make them work without menu

- Ctrl+C shortcut for copy would be nice

yes, sorry, I didn't thought of that, object name is not meant to be
localized while the action text is, I'll fix that.

another debugger shall introduce it's own variable class with custom
setFormat() implementation
and, for additional control there can be something like virtual bool
Variable::supportsSetFormat() to query when displaying the menu. Do you
think this needs to be done?..

I've just done as says to do :)
I have cloned the git repo from gitorious, can I just push my commits up or
I'll need to register on gitorious first?..
