Start with the brake furthest from the master cylinder and work to the closest and make sure the reservoir doesn't empty.

Good luck.
I bow to your superior experience, but I've had a couple of cars in the past- a 4x4 Granada being one and a Citroen Xantia that required the ignition on and a specific sequence to do anything with regard to bleeding the brakes, nevermind changing fluid in the whole system. As I say, you may well know better than me- I would simply urge caution.
