This doesn't matter.  There are still several ways such a file may
look.  It might work for you today but it my produce the wrong result
with the next update or with another OpenPGP implementation.  A script
to detect the cipher algoritm needs to implement the standard and not
merely use some heuristic.  That is for what standards are.
