How to export access rule to XML?

I've defined some access rules using OpenERP 7.0's web interface, and want to include them in the XMLs of a custom module I'm developing.

I've tried making it from scratch in the XML, but I seem to not get how to specify the groups the rule should affect.

How can I export an existing rule to it's XML counterpart?

Security rules are added to OpenERP modules via a combination of XML and CSV.

Take a look at the security folder in any module to understand that format of these files.
