comment Determining active layer regardless of its name using ArcPy?
@Stephen "Active layer" has a long history in Arc* line of projects, as you know, being used to represent the layer selected in the table of contents (ie ArcView 2/3.x and beyond). Arc-speak generally uses "selected layer(s) now. Either term is appropriate if your intent is to focus operations to a particular layer or layers. Its only other common useage of this term is to represent the layer of ground that undergoes seasonal freeze/thaw cycles...(permafrost and GIS can be a confusing combination :) )
