Or look into the HTML output. Each HTML form-element has an ID attribute.

Devel.module doesn't seem to help with that.

It could I suppose. Eg by implementing a hook_form_alter() that stores all
the ids Drupal requested to alter and then display that list at the bottom
of the page. Or maybe use hook_form_alter() to add a visible form-item
(which mentions the form_id) somewhere in the form.
But you're right, at the moment, devel.module has no such feature.

Use the source Luke :-)
