[python-win32] Walking the registry and creating reg files

Well, like I said, I've never done it in Python, and this is going back a bit, so some things might be different, but I'm not talking about RegSaveKey or RegRestoreKey, I'm talking about using EnumKey and CreateKey. As far as I can remember, I didn't have any special permissions for that.

Almost. The RegSaveKey and RegRestoreKey functions, which export and
import entire subtrees, need the SE_BACKUP_NAME privilege. The
administrator account can get that privilege, but you have to use APIs
to ask for it.
