Ask questionsSurface "variablePresentation" in settings.json
This allows user to control how various variable groups are shown in debugger UI. We have implemented it for VS originally (to allow it to request old behavior); but it's more broadly useful, and people are already asking for it in VSCode context.

I agree with you @int19h, it makes sense to have it as a User setting (I don't see how someone would like to disable this per project?).
@DonJayamanne about this:
else we end up with more settings in settings.json that are probably not going to be used by a majority of the users.
I feel that this is already the case for VS Code all up, isn't it? Perhaps I'm biased because I love the power of customization in VS Code, so I'd love to have this in the extension too.
