Expose the ArcMap layer properties through ArcPy.

Idea created by hsiddique on Dec 14, 2012

    Can we please have the ability to have access to all the layer properties for a layer in a mxd usinig ArcPy.
    The help on the layer page states (http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#//00s300000008000000)..

    Not all layer properties are accessible through the Layer object. There are many properties available in the ArcMap Layer Properties dialog box that are not exposed to the arcpy scripting environment (e.g., scale ranges, display properties, field aliases, symbology, and so on).

    It would be great if these properties were exposed.
