Per discussion which happened I agree that registry access would be good to
have. I've some questions about your patch, though:

1. If "PROFILE" a good name. It has strong connection for performance
measurements for me. In Matt's version it was called W32_GETREG. Maybe, some
better name could be invented.

2. What happens for REG_SZ value type?

3. You use _ltoa function. Isn't it msvc-specific. If so, printf would be a
portable alternative.

4. Finally, it seems like you profile.win32.c file has tabs. While Perforce
Jam has them, it think it's better to avoid tabs in a new file.
