Well, my main reason was while debugging its useful to dump storage to see
what is going on, not so much to dump anything on a regular basis in trace.
Sometimes its useful to dump structures etc esp if corruption is occuring,
and a pre-supplied macro would have been very useful. I was just suprised
I couldnt find anything which actually did it already!

I dont understand this? Any dump would go as tracepoints, formatted to
only print out hex and printable characters, and nowhere near the screen.

Anyway, I'll put it in a local private header and noone will ever need see
it - Should keep everyone happy.
