active_support/mini_xml question/bug?

Seems to me that {}.to_xml is generating one level too many of xml structure, but I may be interpreting things incorrectly... I've reduced my question to a very simple case:


=> {"elist"=>[{:element=>1}, {:element=>2}]}

puts b.to_xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <hash> <elist type="array">    <elist>      <element type="integer">1</element>    </elist>    <elist>      <element type="integer">2</element>    </elist> </elist> </hash>

Also with skip_types:

puts b.to_xml(:skip_types => true)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <hash> <elist>    <elist>      <element>1</element>    </elist>    <elist>      <element>2</element>    </elist> </elist> </hash>

There's one too many levels of <elist>. Is this a bug or intentional? Is there a way to get it to remove that extra layer?

What I would like/expect the behavior to be is:

<hash> <elist>      <element>1</element>      <element>2</element> </elist> </hash>
