However, there doesn't seem to be a way to get at that value other than from the Stack Data tool. In particular, it doesn't have a name that can be used from within the Debugger Tool or Watch Tool. When the value is a huge string, I can't figure out how to see its value. Any ideas?

I'll look into why '<return value>' isn't working in the Watch tool. 
It's not currently supported in the Debug Probe because there isn't a 
name it's bound to.  I suppose we could as support for <return value> as 
a special variable name there, though it will take some source rewriting 
and special casing.
