should IMedium.getProperty("CRYPT/KeyStore", val.asOutParam()) (using 
C++ish pseudocode) work, i.e. leave val as empty when the medium is not 
encrypted and return some non-empty string if it is encrypted?

Sounds like it's a lot cheaper than getting all properties and fishing 
out what one wants...
