Well, I'm more of a Unix bod than a Windows one, so if you could, that'd
really save my bacon.  And seeing as you work the other side of London to
me, I could come and buy you a pint to say thanks.  :)

Another thought I had along these lines  (a cheap and dirty solution):
would just using regedit to export HKCU, then merge it back in for the new
user work too  (incase the above solution fails, or we're being very pushed
for time to solution)?
