I understand your concern. Speaking for myself, I develop code for
performance analysis, both professionally and as one of my 15 hobbies.
My interest in registry access is to assess the performance of a
huge network of NT boxes without installing software on every one of them.
This access is, or course, all read-only.
Without LGPL, your code will be a nice proof of concept, but I won't be
able to use it and we'll have to settle with having one NT proxy.
As for taking down the NT box quick, I'm sure you've seen winnuke. It's
not a complex matter.
