Straihghtforward Windows Registry access -- wreg Version 1.2.1

What is it?

wreg is a module implementing functions to access and manipulate the
Windows Registry. The main goal is to simplify both the substring notation
for registry keys an the access to registry data.

What's new in version 1.2.1?

* Requires Python 2.2 and up

* Automatically enables security tokens if the user may Save, Load and
  UnLoad a registry key and the platform supports it (i.e. needs win32all).
  If the user has no rights or the platform doesn't support changing the
  rights, then SaveKey, LoadKey and UnLoad key always return None.

* Added support for loading from, and saving to a regedit-style '.reg'
  file (Import and Export methods).

* Added finding and copying Keys (Find and Add methods)

* Usable on non-windows platforms with a pseudo-registry hive (RegObject)
  so you can test and/or manipulate '.reg' files (i.e. on Linux), before
  applying them on a windows platform.

* Predefined toplevel keys kan directly be used in both the long form and
  the short form (i.e.: HKEY_LOCAl_MACHINE and HKLM).

Where can I get it?
