[R] glmmPQL using REML instead of ML

In glmmPQL in the MASS library, the function uses
repeated calls to the function lme(), using ML.  Does
anyone know how you can change this to REML?  I know
that in lme(), the default is actually set to REML and
you can also specify this as 'method=REML' or
'method'ML' but this isn't applicable to glmmPQL().  

I'd appreciate any help or advice!
