Added some comments to the PR. Basically:

1. We could do with a better descrition of use cases.
2. We either require registry keys to be user-friendly (no UUIDs!) or
we find an alternative approach for the virtualenv-style use case.
3. Registering "how to start the interpreter" (python.exe or whatever)
should be mandatory.

I don't think we're far off, though.
