A "Describe" for an Address Locator

I have recently spent a great deal of time trying to find out which address locator does what. I need to update some files, but if the address locator references the file, and is active, there appears to be no way in a script to find out which address locators are active on the web, and which files are therefore locked. Also, I need to know if I have to rebuild the index. Many people access the file, and some set up their own address locator service, and we are very de-centralized.

I would like to see a "Describe Function" which gives thestate of the locator, the files referenced (or locator if it is a composite locator).  This also might allow the number of locators to be decreased, if there was a way to easily describe them.

With Pro 2.7 a new Locator Class was added which allows access to many of the properties of a locator.  More information can be found here:
