Re: /proc (was: Re: /dev/registry)

Just another log on the fire, the Perl registry modules use "" for the
(default) value.

Even so, I'd lean toward "@" since it's hard to name a file "".

You may need to have an ioctl() to change the key separator.  '\' would
probably be ok, but difficult.  The problem with '/' might make it hard to
handle the cygwin mount tables.

Another suggestion (I won't presume to say better):

.reg files refer to this value as @.  E.g.

At the moment, I have called the default key value, "(default"), the
same as regedit. Does anyone have any objections to this (and if so a
better suggestion)? The brackets can't be typed into bash without being
quoted; this might become a bit of a pain.
