I was wondering if there would be a way to parse the css properties of an element. With TweenLite.set() we can set for example a new x value. It would be great if we could somehow read that value back again  without parsing the matrix manually and doing this in a different way for IE8<.


So when we first do TweenLite.set($myElement, {css:{x:100}});

It would be great if we then could do: TweenLite.get($myElement,"x"), which would then return 100 again.


I found myself in the need for this already a couple of times, but haven't been able to find an easy solution for this. Is there anything like this available that I have overseen? If not, then I think this would be a great addition to the API.
