OK, I've just submitted G|SetPrinterData implementations to
wine-patches - please use these instead of direct Reg apis. (it should
make life easier anyway.

You basically want

HANDLE hprn;
OpenPrinterA("Wine PostScript Driver", &hprn, NULL);
SetPrinterDataA(hprn, "FontSubTable" /*or whatever*/, REG_MULTI_SZ, pData, size);

where pData is a list of \0 terminated strings that make up the table,
finally terminated by a double \0.

Reading the data back is almost the same using GetPrinterDataA

Not really convinced about this. I'd like to move all of the psdrv
stuff out of the config file (which afterall is just a bit of the
registry) into its correct place under
The configuration should all be done via a GUI control.

This should all be a lot easier when I get a FreeType engine bolted on
to gdi.  Then psdrv,x11drv,ttydrv(?) will all have access to the same
data and thus consistancy should not be a problem.
