Vitaliy, thank you for the answer. I would appreciate if you skip the irony and
personal remarks, it serves no purpose except for lowering manner of the
comments. Thank you.

If the I/O is done directly (low level), true, if registry file is accessed via
higher-level API (and AFAIR this is done in Windows) the files could be
represented internally as anything -- raw text file, xml, sqlite db, as long as
they provide WriteKey, ReadKey or whatever the API is (I didn't program for
Windows for a long time, so excuse me for the lack of the correct names).

Ok, pity it is not text file, I don't agree with reasoning, but I don't
convince you, and vice versa. 
Thank you for great program anyway. Kind regards,
