Is there a way to delete layout elements through arcpy.mapping?  I'm not seeing one in the 10 docs.

I presume that a workaround would be to just change the X or Y position of the element to outside the bounds of the page (although I haven't tried it), but there should really be a clean way to delete a layout element with an arcpy.mapping script.

Any insight, ESRI employees/arcpy experts?
