[Python-Dev] use PyCObject (was: CVS: python/dist/src/PC msvcrtmodule.c,1.4,1.5 _winreg.c,1.5,1.6)

While I'm very glad that I suggested PyLong_FromVoidPtr() for issues like
this, I think that returning an HKEY should probably use a PyCObject. You
will then be able to supply a "free" function that can close the HKEY.
