The new feature coverting and int value to its hexadecimal one, is great, but unfortunately, once the code gets refactored, the original decimal value gets lost, making the code far less readable.

I wonder if it could be possible for the refactoring tools to add a coment line above the refactored one, telling what's got converted.

As an example:

Before refactoring we may have:

int someValue = 90;

After refactoring, we could have:

// someValue converted from it's original value of: 90
int someValue = 0x5a;

I believe code will maintain its readability this way.
