I keep hearing that there are patches to xpdf that unlock encrypted documents
(apparently the encryption is not terribly sophisticated, and relies more on
security by obscurity). With these patches, one can print unprintable files,
as well as extract data from encrypted PDF. I can't seem to find the reference
at the moment---I will keep looking, and perhaps someone else has that info
as well.
