Simpler access to view and modify the persisted workflow instance data

Despite our best efforts and preventative measures, sometimes the only thing to be done is get in and fiddle the data. If we change a complex type that happens to have been used in a workflow in such a way that breaks deserialization, a workflow might not find out until some time after deployment. At this point it is too late to back out as other workflows etc have been created on the new type structure.

I have only managed to figure out a way to view the data in the persistence store (SQL provider), I would like to be able to modify it in extreme circumstances. Not a UI, possibly not even an API , just some code that works.
