    Have you ever set your legend item label symbol text size to say 14 pt., then opened your .mxd to find that it has mysteriously changed to something like 13.63 pt.?  Or 15.82 pt.?

    It sure would be nice to be able to use arcpy set the size and then pdf the map outside of ArcMap.  We can already export the pdf, but can't get at the legend item label symbol text size (or any other legend item properties).

    Please think seriously about adding this finer level of control into subsequent versions.
