Anybody have a RegDeleteTree[A|W] implementation lying around?

I've created a wikipage for it:

There you can find pointers to several implementations already. 

When I raised the question I thought I could find some spare time. (I
didn't obviously).

As RegDeleteTree is a Vista function (and thus not officially there
yet), I'm not sure how Alexandre would react to this. Of course we need
some conformance tests for this, but the only OS's where it will run
will be Vista and Wine. I'm not sure whether winetest can cope with
Vista yet.

I'd say go for it and use one of the many implementations we already
have as a base. Maybe the best one is SHDeleteKey as that's an official
one (with tests already) and you'd only have to leave out the last
