By definition, Windows power users are comfortable with the registry, as 
how else did they get to be power users in the first place?

No, a totally undiscoverable "advanced" mode is worse than just regedit. 
Even an "advanced" button is bad: this sort of UI thinking is not one we 
wish to copy IMHO.

Sorry, but I don't see what your hangup over the registry is. Remember 
the .reg files are plain text! You can edit them in whatever editor you 
like (as long as no wine processes are running at the time, of course).
