What would a better layering look like? The problem is that
every individual registry change requires a tdb transaction.
gencache has the same problem and solved it by two
databases: One transaction-based and one non-transactional.
We could apply a similar scheme and use the winreg_FlushKey
operation to trigger the sync from outside.
