I have now (after long studying docs and examples)::

def get_winreg(key,subkey):
  try:
    rkey = winreg.OpenKey(winreg.HKEY_CURRENT_USER,key,0,winreg.KEY_READ)
    rvalue,rtype = winreg.QueryValueEx(rkey,subkey)
    winreg.CloseKey(rkey)
  except WindowsError:
    rvalue,rtype = None,None
  return rvalue


def set_winreg(key,subkey,value):
  winreg.CreateKey(winreg.HKEY_CURRENT_USER,key)
  rkey = winreg.OpenKey(winreg.HKEY_CURRENT_USER,key,0,winreg.KEY_WRITE)
  winreg.SetValueEx(rkey,subkey,0,winreg.REG_SZ,value)
  winreg.CloseKey(rkey)
