While it makes a nice demo of enumerating the registry, its probably not
the best way to get the current user. Try this:
>>> import win32security, win32api
>>> win32security.LookupAccountName(None, win32api.GetUserName())
(<PySID object at 7ef288>, u'BOBCAT', 1)
(ie, the result is the SID, the system where the SID came from, and the
type of SID.)
