[OT ?] (Pythonic) detection word protected files

This is certainly off topic, but as my problem must have a pythonic answer.

I'm building an utility that makes a catalog of M$ word files in a giant 
directory tree. The password protected files must be marked, and I 
didn't find how to guess which files are password protected and which 
ones are not.

I can't use the COM interface for this because the utility must run on a 
Linux Samba server.

I didn't find anything satisfying in M$ related sites (like msdn) or 
forums or google.

Any hint ?

Many thanks by advance.
