I also looked into the Wine code.  It appears to be a registry emulation
on Unix, not an implementation of remote registry access from non-windows
(The code I'm referring to is in misc/registry.c.  If I'm in the wrong
place, let me know.)

To further compound the problem, the registry key under NT that I'm
interested in is the largly undocumented HKEY_PERFORMANCE_DATA.  I've
written all of the code under NT that accesses this key and untangles
the data into a comprehensible form.  I'd like now to do this from Unix.
