What's the problem ?

I explained my view on how the TRegistry problems should be solved. 
I will not repeat it. 
For organizational reasons, I personally prefer a single patch that
implements what I consider correct, and not a series of incremental 
patches each addressing part of the problem.
I mentioned that in a comment on one of the bugreports.

Apparently Joost applied a patch addressing part of the problem.
That's also fine: he does the work so he decides the how. 
That has always been the rule in FPC.
(Not sure whether he can now also close the associated bugreport ?)

So, please carry on. Someone will eventually apply the patches!
