Requested feature tweak: Local variable watching

I’m always watching variables, local and global, and often use a dedicated window for a variable as I step through a script.

If I do that with a local variable, as soon as the script steps out of the context where the local variable is active, the window closes, and when it returns to that context I have to find the variable in the list and double click it to open the window again.

Would it be possible to keep the variable watcher window open for local variables when they are not currently observed? Presumably I’d still be able to use the stepping controls in the window’s toolbar.
