Rs.Area() method

This method, undocumented in the Help, actually autocompletes. It’s in geometry.py. However, if the input object causes the method to fail, it raises an error and the script bails. From geometry.py:

def Area(object_id):
    "Compute the area of a closed curve, hatch, surface, polysurface, or mesh"
    rhobj = rhutil.coercerhinoobject(object_id, True, True)
    mp = Rhino.Geometry.AreaMassProperties.Compute(rhobj.Geometry)
    if mp is None: raise Exception("unable to compute area mass properties")
    return mp.Area

So, (preferred solution) maybe it could be documented in the Help and it could be modified to just return None if something goes wrong instead of raising an error…

Or, (less preferable solution) - remove it from geometry.py… There is no equivalent on the vb Rhinoscriptsyntax side…
