Set angle value for all layout elements in arcpy

Idea created by lrugiel on Dec 5, 2012

    Can we please get the ability to set the page orientation with arcpy?  If that is not possible, would it be possible to make all of the layout elements in ArcMap rotatable and give arcpy the ability to access and change the rotation value (angle) for the layout elements?  If we could do that, we could set the script up to rotate, relocate, and resize the elements to basically create a landscape map turned 90 degrees.
