No, I don't think so, but I think that:
1. There is a chance to get it into gnus CVS
2. It is a good idea to make it public available, not at least as a
   reminder for after the release...  ;-)

Yes, and I'm using a patched version for some days without problems,
but: beware I've only tested this code, not proven it right.  ;-)

Yes, this might be a problem indeed -- but as far as I can see from a
quick glance over the source mm-uu-pgp-encrypted-extract-1 is only
used for "application/x-gnus-pgp-encrypted" which seems quite non
standard and which I haven't knowingly encountered in real live --
which would explains why I haven't noticed the glitch in my patch...

Anyway how about something along the lines of 

;;; untested:
  (funcall (mml2015-clear-decrypt-function))
  (eq t
      (compare-strings "OK" nil nil
                       (mm-handle-multipart-ctl-parameter mm-security-handle
                       nil 2)))

this should fix it.
