I would like to list the values of certain variables using Drush in order to make sure they are in fact the variables that I intend to add to my feature. It seems that some variables are parents which contain multiple children. I use a drush/features/git workflow with a purchased but customized theme and following is my example for clarity.
In my feature
myfeature_theme_helper there are two variables that I exported to it:
theme_settings. I want to be able to view what values each are storing so I can determine if they should be removed from my helper. One of them contains an active tab, for example, which is not a setting that I want to commit to code.
