Re: simplify Arg[E^(I x)]?

The following seems to work:

In[24]:= FullSimplify[Arg[E^((2 Pi n + x) I)],  x > -Pi && x <= Pi &&
Element[n, Integers]]
Out[24]= x

Does that help?

Why doesn't this simplify?

Fullsimplify[Arg[E^(I x)], x \[Element] Reals]

I expect to get 'x'.

Is there some way I can get this to simplify?
