[LLVMdev] Passes document

Reading the Passes.html document, I have many questions that are 
unanswered by the doc. For each pass listed, I would like to know:

1) What other passes need to be run before this one in order for this 
one to work?
2) What other passes should not be run before this one, but should 
instead be run after? (In other words, what is the recommended order of 
the passes.)
3) What is the C++ name of the pass? Sometimes the name in the doc 
doesn't always match the name in the code.

On a related question: Is this the correct list to be posting these 
kinds of questions? Specifically, I see that most of the traffic on this 
list is about *developing* LLVM, whereas my interest is primarily in 
*using* LLVM.
