OK. As Aandi points out, there are some samples included
with the SDK on how to write your own security handler (which is what
you will need to do).

Unfortunately, that's not how it works. When the user does a
Save As, they will be given the ability to secure a document, at
which time they can choose which security handler to use.

I guess you could do your own "Save As" from the menu (bring
up "PutFile" dialog, PDDocSave(), etc.)), though most folks don't.
