Retrieving Universe ID or CUID via *any* CR API?

Hello friends -

My general understanding is that a Crystal Report when sourced by a Universe is essentially exploiting the sql generation performed by the query panel to arrange a valid SQL statement after which its passed to Crystal and transformed into CR's own SQL command object. There's no subsequent public property or record in the CMS that denotes that the Crystal Report is now associated to that Universe or not.

Question: Is there any non-interactive (read: programmatic) method of retrieving the Universe ID or CUID utilized by the CR via any property/method via any of the current APIs?

Thanks in advance -

    IReport.getReferencedUniverses() is one way to get a set of Universe id values.
