    Hmm, but if the code fails a regression test, how can you trust it
with your defaults?  :-)

    There's the RegQueryInfoKey() function, which can return the last
write time of a registry key on Windows NT/2000.  Windows 95 users may
just be screwed, though.  (The doc I'm reading doesn't mention 98 or
ME.)  If anybody ever ports NSRunLoop to use native Windows events,
there's even RegNotifyChangeKeyValue(), which a process can use to
register to receive events when a key changes.

All persons, living or dead, are purely coincedental.
