Tool cannot process encrypted PDF files - refer to example PDF file.

Gordon Paynter writes:

My understanding is that the metadata extraction tool has a PDF plugin that currently does not handle encrypted PDF because it cannot decrypt them.

Would it be possible to write a new "encrypted PDF" plugin that would be used in parallel with the regular PDF plugin, and that would recognise encrypted PDFs, output their MIME type, and output whatever information could be gleaned without decrypting them, and output that the file is encrypted and no further information is available?
