Can tool be extended to non-Office docs

The tool is great.  It does not, however, pick up on the extended metadata for non-Office docs.

Specifically, the Owner/Author/Originator is not retained for a, for example, PDF file.

I can see these extended properties and can get at them through the Shell32 COM object.

Do you think this tool can be extended to get at this extra metadata for non-office docs?

We briefly looked into this during development. The challenge is that each file format can implement this in it's own way, and there is no easy way to add this. We currently do not plan to implement this.
