I ask that element locking/unlocking functions available through the Production Mapping Extension be modifiable through python. I have the production mapping extension and certain map text elements are locked in the layout using the lock function from the Production Cartography tool. Once locked, however, those text elements can't be modified/updated using python. We're working with 100's of MXDs so the simple task of unlocking a layout element, modifying, and relocking it becomes burdensome when you have to do it across all  these MXDs.
