While on a break point, there should be a way to evaluate selected text in the source frame.
There should be a separate request to evaluate text on hover, but it is beyond the scope of this one.
I'd suggest the following user scenario:
1. User hits a breakpoint
2. User selects text he wants to evaluate
3. Presses Meta + Shift + E shortcut (or optionally chooses item in Popup menu?)
4. Result is printed in the console.

We really need a way to change the context menu from JS for the Inspector so we can add items like this for discoverability.
Bug 26881 and bug 22147.

I think that would be fine and more readable on one line.
Talk to Sam Weinig, he has a patch (maybe landed) that will let us add "evaluate on hover".
