I has similar thoughts about tracking the object's changes.
It could possibly done by replacing a reference to an object by proxy,
which intercepts all messages sent to it
and then, sending the same message to wrapped object,
and after that, compares a object's contents with its hollow copy
(which made beforehead).
Then , if change is detected - notify a listener.

So, this is quite easy to implement.. but integrating it into a
debugger is a lil bit another story :)
