Enhance Describe to enable ArcPy to determine SDE storage type (ST_GEOMETRY, etc)

Idea created by graeme on Jun 12, 2012
    From ArcPy I would like to be able to determine the storage type (ST_GEOMETRY, SDO_GEOMETRY, SDEBINARY) of data stored in relational databases via ArcSDE in order to either report on how spatial data is stored, or to determine what operations it is likely to support.

    This has also been discussed at Stack Exchange GIS.
