Adding a "die and dump" debug helper function

Description

Inspired by Laravel, I was wondering, if it was ever considered to add a comparable function like dd() (die dump) to WordPress as well.

The function accepts a parameter that can be a mix of types (string, object, array etc.) and prints it out in a readable fashion.

I think that it would be a handy function for developers who are debugging. Could be named wp_dd() perhaps.

I would consider contributing it to core myself (have no prior experience with that), but maybe it was already discussed before and decided against the idea.
