Maybe we should fork the Wine/Config branch into a separate .reg file to 
appease those who want to edit it using a text editor. That would make 
the switch from config file -> registry less obvious. Not exactly the 
same of course, no comments for one, no defaults to show you what they 
are for another, but it might be an improvement?
