If it's user-editable, it has to be in HKCU, with proper defaults in the
code because we don't want to create user keys from wine.inf. Plus of
course the format has to be something that users can understand, it
can't be a binary array. Basically you'd have to replicate inputrc
inside the registry, I'm not sure it's worth the trouble.
