Autobump via MEL / Python ?

I think in previous versions of Arnold was possible to enable/disable Autobump on shape node via commands.

In 3.3.0 MtoA, even Echo All Commands is enabled, nothing appears in script editor.

Nice, thank you.

Just out of curiosity, why it isn't automatically updating UI like other settings ?

Setting it by scripting doesn't trigger the same UI callbacks.

PS That Enable Autobump setting is just a UI flag, it doesn't correspond directly to an ARnold parameter.
