(would it be working as a standalone application or runs in the same way as my other proposed visualizers)

After having some thoughts about visualizers, I have come across two
more visualizers which I think would add value to the Mono community.
These are

LINQ to SQL Visualizer: Sometimes, a small mistake in a query could
result in undesirable results and its hard to locate such small
mistakes in the console. This visualizer will show LINQ query in a
presentable form so a developer can easily see any mistake.

Exception Visualizer: This visualizer will display exceptions in a
graphical form (e.g., in XML style) easier to see exception details
and stack trace.

Please share your thoughts.
