Is this still valid? I see this:

watch expression break on write of the variable or address defined by the expression argument

in the documentation here:
http://xdebug.org/docs-dbgp.php#breakpoints

Though I see this in the code: XDEBUG_ERROR_BREAKPOINT_TYPE_NOT_SUPPORTED

Are break on Variable changes supported?

In PHP, this would mean watching a specific memory location, and that can not be done in a safe way.
