[development] FAPI execution order cheat sheet

I'm trying to figure out just what order various FAPI elements get executed in (#process, #after_build, #validate, #submit, #access, etc.) so I can determine just where I want to insert my custom functions, and I got to wondering if anyone has put together a list of the order things those elements get fired? It would be a very handy little cheat sheet if it exists.

What would be really handy is a flow chart of the FAPI processing -- an illustration of exactly what happens and in what order -- but I'd settle for a simple list.

Just wondering if anyone has already done this for a training program or something (or maybe has at least the beginnings of something like this) and would be willing to share :-)
