Bingo. That was my understanding as well, until I looked at the RegCloseKey
and was thrown totally off-track:

/* RegCloseKey */
return RtlNtStatusToDosError( NtClose( hkey ) );

which translates more or less to:

/* NtClose */
SERVER_START_REQ( close_handle )
    req->handle = Handle;
    ret = wine_server_call( req );
    if (!ret && reply->fd != -1) close( reply->fd );

Basically leading to the belief that there is actually an fd. (Ignoring the
fact that we need to keep things general) Which, looking at the arch doesn't
make much sense... lots of little files would do nobody good. Next time I'll
ask before I'm lead to believe what I shouldn't.
