  Glad to hear it!

  Probably so; I guess this means it'll need to be added to the core
Python distribution for Win32.  I'm sure a basic registry module
wouldn't be hard to write (unless it's o.k. to abscond an existing bit 
of code?? ;), but this is largely up to Guido (accepting it, not
necessarily writing it) since it would have to be core.
