How to change Catalyst Control Center settings from external utility

I would like to know if there is any documentation available for the CCC COM interface in ATICCom.dll and ATICCom.tlb.

I would like to change the 3D settings (AA/AF) page from an external tool that will automatically detect if certain games start, eg Borderlands, and then apply my preferred AA/AF settings. This would save me going into the CCC everytime I run a different game to change AA modes etc.

Using C# disassembly I have figured out how the CCC .NET system works, but it would be nice if there was some official/supported way of doing this.

So far I have figured out that IC4User or ICOM (not sure which one yet) exposes several methods for setting/getting CCC settings.

Eg ICOM.SetValue("0:Radeon3D:Main3D:Main3D", "OptQuality");

will set the 3D quality slider bar to Optimal Quality.

Looking in atipdlxx.dll and atiadlxx.dll only seems to export display/adapter settings not AA/AF stuff.
