It doesn't really matter what other debuggers do. But it does matter to have
backtraces and general output in hex because this:
1. matches Wine relay logs
2. helps to easily recognize things like user and gdi handles, relative to
module and heap base offsets, window styles, messages, many special constants
which are in hex in win32, wine internal messages, WM_USER/WM_APP+xxx/common
controls messages
3. a lot of other things

I do care, because I have to dayly look at huge amount of logs, and having
backtraces print data in hex makes my life enormously easiler.
