Using ReactOS Registry format

Last night Martin Fuchs suggested that we look into using ReactOS's
registry format in order to be compatible with Windows registry
databases. I have the latest release of ReactOS running on QEMU on my
box, so I checked it out. Basically, they're using the same regedit
program from Wine, missing find command and all (Which I too feel is a
pain in the neck). I looked at the config stuff, and I found what looked
like some binary database files for each of the main registry sections.
Unfortunately, there's no documentation at all on any of this on their
website. If we decide to go this route, we may be in for a hell of a lot
of work. But, I do agree with all of your points. I think the current
system could use some improvement, especially in the area of searching.
Let me know what you think of all this.

Kind Regards,
James Liggett
