API export action does not support exporting specific revisions
Open, NormalPublic

Description

On the api, if you specify a bunch of revisions, the export option should export those revisions, not the latest version of the page that those revisions correspond to.

Example: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&revids=10000&export&exportnowrap should export revision 1000, not the latest revision of [[Paris]].

Came up when trying to answer http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Thread:Project:Support_desk/Exporting_use_contributions_history . Be even cooler if list=usercontributions could be used as a generator for the specific revisions in question.
