FileDumper to print the chronologically ordered list of process names

After some investigation, it is not immediately apparent to me how this can be done.
The process information can be obtained via the
ProcessHistoryRegistry, or through objects associated with a given process
Group, etc. The
ProcessHistoryRegistry is not a candidate since its keys are hashes; the ordering, therefore, does not correspond to the chronology.
The only solution I can think of at the moment is to retrieve the
BranchIDLists object from the root file, and obtain the process name through one item on each
BranchIDList (singular), which are ordered chronologically within the
BranchIDLists meta-container. Unfortunately, the
BranchIDLists meta-container corresponds to products that were produced only in the
Event. So that doesn't solve the problem either.

Implemented with art:ba1cda3. My interpretation of this issue is that all products printed should be printed in chronological order according to process name.
--process-history program option was also added to
file_info_dumper to provide the list of process names corresponding to processes that produced the file in question.
