Is it possible to retrieve layoutAssignments from profiles using MavensMate?

Judging by this answer, it looks like it should be.

But a search of my profile's metadata doesn't return any results & the only profile elements that seem to be retrieved are Apex Class assignments & user permissions (nothing related to objects i.e. Accounts).

Based on the comments on this idea, it looks like I can simply retrieve the Profile object & find the assignments there.

In order to view Page Layout assignments, you need to add the page layout to your project.

To do this select desired layouts and associated profiles in the new/edit project UI (or manually modify your package.xml).
