reference time value of precomp without timeRemap enabled?

Pretty much what the title says; is there a property to reference a precomp's current frame value without enabling timeRemap?

E.g., I have a 1s comp that I trim an arbitrary number of frames off the front and shift it back in time X seconds in; can I reference what precompTime is displayed when the layer is active through an expression?

Thanks all!

digging a bit deeper, I figured it out; it would be:

targetLayer.sourceTime(time)

Hope anyone else who's googling around can find this helpful.
