A while back I was trying to track the specific order of actions and  
filters.  (Working on a plugin).  I hacked the core files and added an  
error_log() to the beginning of the do_action filter, telling me which  
action/filter was just called.

Worked like a champ -- answered my question in about 30 seconds of  
work rather than combing through the files tracing the execution  

Your project sounds like a very neat idea.  Mine was just quick -n-  
dirty.  :)
