Accessing LAS Dataset statistics

I have been looking around the helpfiles, but can't find any info on this: Is there a way for me to access LAS Dataset statistics from a script/model builder)?

When defining a LAS Dataset the 'Compute Statistics' option will compute point spacing for each file in the dataset. What I'd like to do is to accesss those numbers and estimate an average for the dataset as an input for further processing. You should be able to iterate through that field to calculate an average, but I can't find how to access it...

(not sure if this should be here in geoprocessing or in 3D analyst, but starting here as the las dataset isn't just 3D analyst-specific...)
