      Right, I guess I'm just used to that. I suppose it could mislead a 
newcomer into thinking the collection under inspection is indexable. 
It's useful, though, when you're scrolling around the field list of a 
collection, to temporarily remember the fabricated indices of some 
elements of interest.

      For a set with the first element being the character with value 
65, I guess I'd like to see "1: $A" in the field list and "Character 
value: 65" in the value pane. I want the contents of the value pane to 
be something I can evaluate (and, especially, "debug it"), and which 
presents on sight a meaningful class to browse.

      thanks for asking!
