Can I open password-protected excel files or not?

Issue #193 resolved

Hi, This isn't really an issue, more of a question. The documentation does not mention password-protected excel files, but there are methods in the source code that make reference to setting a password, getting a password etc. here:

http://pythonhosted.org/openpyxl/_modules/openpyxl/worksheet.html#Worksheet.add_chart

Do these do something different or can I create / open password-protected with this library?

Thanks for clarifying, Matthias

    @CharlieC Hi Charlie, I am also facing similar problem to read/write password protected file for Linux OS which is a blocker for us to fulfill the client's requirements in python while other programming languages support this. Is there any other alternative way to get this done in python for Linux OS?

    Thanks in advance for your help!!!
