No, it's been brought up before as a project (too bad nobody jumped on 
it for SoC, but oh well).  There needs to be a "simple" interface on top 
of the Python API to do common things like this.  It's not hard to write 
a Python script that does this for you, which could then be included as 
"from Blender.Simple import *" or something.   But someone has to take 
the time to sit down and either code it or at least code what that API 
needs so somebody else can code it.  Believe it or not, I don't write 
lots of scripts in python -- certainly not as many as others so -- so 
I'm not the best person to figure out what should go into the API.
