It relates to the last user audit record that changed that row. So if you
want to know why a row exists (or what the last thing that touched it was),
you can dereference the contextId in the user audit table.

Well, if it were easy, I might say yes. But I didn't want to mess with the
default Xstream serialization. Plus, I also didn't want people to rely on
this either i.e. start using it for something, since the xml export isn't for
provisioning, right? :)

Anyways, here is the final version of the export with comments turned on.
That is, unless someone has comments on my comments.
