In this case, I need to write it, but thanks -- I'm sure the same applies.

Sure, and that's what I've done, but then OGR is not writing it, I am 
writing it with Python -- which I agree is not that big a deal but still 
harder than one command line with ogr2ogr.

It doesn't really sound like this is a "format" that it would make sense 
to support -- which is probably why OGR doesn't support it.
