Use of the registry is being deprecated a lot in win2k, as is
overuse of the <windir>/system as lots of problems are
caused by reg bloat and poor installation programs.

Latest guidelines from MS are to put own configs dll's etc in
program directory where possible. UnInstall info etc of course
goes in registry, but personally I like being able to move
program directories between tired NT partitions (regbloat)
without having to do a full install.
