It's tedious, but with grep on your side, it's not an impossible task
or even a super hard one... just a bit tedious if you don't keep up
with your developers.  I've found doing this on the devel machines
produces better bang for the buck than on the production DB's (though
I still do it there occasionally).  Once a query is found, I typically
launch a big 'ole fashion egrep -r with a reasonably unique part of
the query and am normally pretty successful in finding the culprit.
Sometimes you'll have to use sockstat to find what machine and what
PID you're dealing with, but that's something I have to do rarely.

-questions would've been sufficient (the more topical the list the
