Please allow Arcpy Mapping to clone group elements. A lot of times I need to build custom tables for a map layout. It would be so much easier if I could just make one row off the page then clone it while making the table with arcpy. As it stands I have to create each element of the row off the page, then clone each element and move each one individually onto the layout. Not fun. In case you are like me and you think "This must be possible. Why would you not be able to clone a group element?", attached is a screenshot of the arcpy error I get if I try and clone a group element.

Gus, you're right about this issue. Working same things as you mentioned seem as time loss to me. With the not knowing the backround reason why thats not possible, this feature can help anybody to make things more faster than before.
