[wp-hackers] Seeing the Actual SQL statements WP is running when compiling the posts...

That's very cool. Thank you..

Along the same learning lines, how about printing the list of every
single WP function that have run before it makes it to the template?
And perhaps display that list in the post itself?

Did somebody programmatically do that already?

Obviously, this would be on a test site where it is OK and quite
interesting to see all the actual run time list..

BTW, is there a way in PHP to tell the functions to output their name

something like

function xyx ()
  echo this.function.name;
