I use this quite a bit and I'm aware of two bugs, which is not directly
related to the parsing, but that on windows unicode is implicit for
certain data types even when the data is given in binary format, it's
still converted. The other 'bug' is that unicode .reg files are not yet
supported. I'd be very interested to know what other bugs there are.
