[gdal-dev] writing encoding into GPX files

Hello all,

I'm writing GPX files with OGR and the documentation states:  "The content returned by OGR will be encoded in UTF-8, after the conversion from the encoding mentionned in the file header is."

When my GPX file is written out it does not include the  encoding="UTF-8" in the head tag.  Is there a way to have it be written?
This is what I get:  <?xml version="1.0"?>
This is what I'd like:  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

I'm using GPSBabel to upload these GPX files to GPS units and it is not reading my GPX files unless the encoding is specified.
