I also am working on a scripts that serches the registry for key terms.  I
have found that this works a a substitute.

import codecs

os.popen("reg export hklm regFile.txt")
regfile = codecs.open(regFile.txt, encoding='utf_16')

#Then you can do text searches in the file somthing like

for item in regfile:
    if '[' in item
    print item
