Unique values symbology from a style

         In arcpy.mapping when the lyr property "symbologyType" is "UNIQUE_VALUES" both the values and the labels associated with them can be read using the mapping module. However, if a style file is applied (match symbols), the the symbologyType changes to "OTHER" and the data is inaccesible.
         Can the mapping module be opened up a little to read unique values symbology when applied from a style set please.
