I would be surprised if Yhc was capable of compiling GHC. But I don't
really know for sure, and would certainly be happy if that was the
case. You'd also get bootstrapping for free, with the .hbc compilation
route, which is a very attractive option.

On Xp and W2K the reg program is capable of querying and modifying the
registry. Just type "reg" at the command line. It basically calls the
Win32 Reg... functions with the appropriate parameters.
