XF 2.0 Viewing template modifications applied to specific template.

I don't think the title works, but bear with me.

In XF1, when viewing a template, you could view template modifications as applied to that template - with the changes supplied by the style included.

This appears to have been removed from XF2 - has it, or am I just blind?

This XF1 feature was incredibly useful for determine what was actually being rendered to adjust template modifications for add-on compatibility.

This is an important feature regression for XenForo 2 w.r.t to add-on development & template handling.

Worse, this is built in as-is applyModificationsToTemplate outputs the fully modified template which is used during template validation but this isn't surfaced in the UI.
