How about wildcard filters?  The default could be *; but you could
remove it and add other filters.  

I agree this would be a great addition.  I've had a python app with
Numeric arrays with thousands of array entries.  Eric would 'hang' when
it hit a breakpoint with these variables in scope.  I haven't had to
debug this app recently, but the ability to remove these from the list
would have been a great improvement.
