Ask questionsSurface "variablePresentation" in settings.json

https://github.com/microsoft/ptvsd/issues/1621#issuecomment-616581823

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.

@int19h I like it! An alternative would be to have python.debuggerVariablePresentation, but I prefer your suggestion because it goes with our other settings (python.testing, python.linting, etc.). I don't foresee us having many settings for debugging in the settings.json file, but I think it's good to follow our standard format.

useful!
