variables can be dependent on each other; for example, I might have variable B that includes a conditional check on variable A:

($V{A}.equals("yes")?"true":"false")

This is an extremely simple example, but if I created B first and then A, B will get an NPE when it tries to dereference A. I already created an entry requesting the ability in the UI to change the order of variables, but it would be great if the UI would flag variables that are dependent on other variables that are later in the variable list.

In this example, for instance, perhaps when I created (or modified) variable B referring to variable A, it might make variable B red in the variable list.
