This seems like a lot of work to go through to just stop showing "_cmd". Any variables for the language object ("self" for ObjC or "this" for C++) are marked as artificial so we want to see these. If that is the case, we can remove this all together.

Sounds good, my objection is removed. Still kind of weird that we runtime->IsRuntimeSupportValue() from one language and runtime->IsWhitelistedRuntimeValue() from another. I know why we do it, but it still seems a bit weird.
