Sysprep Answer File Location in VMware ESX 3.5/VC 2.5

I was looking for the file location of the Sysprep answer files in Virtual Centre 2.5 used with ESX 3.5 when creating a new Customisation Specification for a X64 VM Template but couldn't find it. I realise Customisation Specifications can be accessed in VC via Edit > "Customisation Specifications..." but really wanted to know where and how they were stored.

Not being able to find anything on net, I asked a colleague. He pointed out that they reside in a table in the VC SQL DB called 'VPX_CUSTOMIZATION_SPEC'.
