[mapguide-users] Change map scale or get min and max scale from layer

IIRC, IsVisible() is the same as GetVisible(), which is a property that 
determines if the layer is visible.
If the layer is "visible", it will be displayed, but only appears in the 
map at predefined scale ranges.

The scale ranges are actually present in the layer object, but not 
accesible from the API.
You have to read out the LayerDefinition ResourceIdentifier, load the 
xml from the LayerDefinition, and find the <VectorScaleRange> tags:

Be aware that both <MinScale> and <MaxScale> may be missing, in which 
case they are 0 and inifinite respectively.
