It is possible to set page size in ArcPy?

I'm looking for any tricky way to set the page size, using pure Python or ArcPy.

I'm using ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop.

No, I believe MXDs must be pre-authored with the desired page sizes. At 10.1 the ability to query the page size was added, but not set it.
