Arduino Duemilanove power circuit – how does it work?

Arduino Duemilanove Power
From the forums, great info from Adafruit forum member floresta – Arduino Duemilanove power circuit – how does it work?

Here’s a drawing that I made in order to figure it out myself. It agrees with Zener’s description except he assumed a 0.5 volt diode drop and I used 0.7v.
