Suggestion for regtool

Hi DJ,

I have made a small patch to your new regtool. It's a nice tool
but personally I hate using backslashes on the command line.

My patch checks the first char of the key value to be a slash.
If so, all slashes are translated to backslashes if they
are not preceded by a backslash itself.

I have done the check for the first char is a slash to avoid
some fuzzy kind of automatism.

If you don't like this patch, simply ignore it :)

Bye,
Corinna
