How about a more general approach, then. I offered in the past to put 
wine's registry into a relational database, for performance reasons. 
That was turned down due to editability reasons.

However, how about we use a plugin mechanism. We will have the wine 
built in text-file registry handler, and we will also have a plugin 
mechanism by which we could write external registry handlers. This way, 
wine could have registry in a relational database, in a binary windows 
compatible file, or using these guys' project, and the end user will be 
the one to decide which is best for them.

Lots of good reasons on why this project is not good enough to rely on.
