#28450: Wordpress XML export contains data for all authors

 When running a WordPress XML export (Tools > Export), the
 wxr_authors_list(); function is called to output a list of authors at the
 top of the exported document.

 This happens regardless of filters you have specified.

 Say that you are exporting data for a single user only, I don't see why we
 need the XML to include login names and email addresses for all other
 users on the blog.

 I don't have a patch as of yet, wanted to see if this is "working as
 intended" first, but I would be happy to submit a patch that limits the
 authors list depending on the export filter specified.

 The use case for this is that we want users on our site to be able to
 export their own data only. This can be done via available filters but we
 can't stop wxr_authors_list(); from outputting all the author email
 addresses on the site in the export.
