Is there a way to access the SPList.RootFolder.Properties key/value pair collection from a client, either via Lists.asmx or the new client object model?

I know I can create my own ISAPI endpoint and implement access, but I'd prefer to use pre-existing functionality if possible.

There is a List.RootFolder class which will get you the Root Folder of the list. And there is the Folder.Properties class which should get you the properties of the Root Folder.

So you should be able to access it using: List.RootFolder.Properties

Those classes are for server-side code. My question is about client applications that query the SharePoint server for this information. – Philipp Schmid Mar 28 '13 at 17:50
Those classes are part of the Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll which can be used in client applications. – Vardhaman Deshpande Mar 28 '13 at 18:25
