Yes, but Xcode doesn't (I guess, I don't really use xcode) allow you to type just a variable name to see the variable (you have to type "print var" or something), so there's no conflict there. That's why emulating Xcode might not be the best idea here...

It might be interesting to see what other vscode DAP backends do in this situation (if there are any to which we can compare to -- I also don't really use vscode, so I don't know :P ). It would be nice to be consistent with them at least...
