[Trilinos-Users] A question about ParamerList names and the XML name attribute

This is functionality that in the past hasn't been part of ParameterLists. I
however have added it and its available in the current dev branch. It will
be available in the next release of Trilinos along with a mountain of other
new ParameterList serialization capabilities.

Peace, Love, and Source Code,

I've been playing around with sample code based on the cxx_main.cpp
program in the ParameterList test directory and I noticed that I can not
set an XML  name attribute for a ParameterList object but I can set an
XML name attribute for a sublist of a ParameterList object. Why?

Here's my code snippet based on cxx_main.cpp

   ParameterList Sample("Sample Parameter List");

   Sample.set("Parameter 1",1);
   Sample.set("Parameter 2", "some kind of string");
   Sample.set("Parameter 3", 1.23456789E-10);
   ParameterList& SB_1 = Sample.sublist("Sublist 1");

   SB_1.set("Num of iterations", 100);
   SB_1.set("Tolerance", 1.000E-6);

and this is what I see in the XML file Sample.xml

 <Parameter name="Parameter 1" type="int" value="1"/>
 <Parameter name="Parameter 2" type="string" value="some kind of string"/>
 <Parameter name="Parameter 3" type="double" value="1.23457e-10"/>
 <ParameterList name="Sublist 1">
   <Parameter name="Num of iterations" type="int" value="100"/>
   <Parameter name="Tolerance" type="double" value="1e-06"/>

I expected to see '<ParameterList name="Sample Parameter List">' in the
first tag.

Is there a way to do that?
