#603 TIP #362: Allow access to 32 and 64 bit registry

TIP Implementation

Windows uses separate nodes for 32 and 64 bit programs in the Windows registry on 64 bit platforms. This patch adds a -32bit and -64bit option to the registry command to allow it to access those nodes specifically.

    Updated patch that puts -32bit and -64bit as the first optional argument of the registry command. This will allow further compatibility for developers by allowing them to do things like:

    interp alias {} registry32 {} registry -32bit
    interp alias {} registry64 {} registry -64bit

    Applied to HEAD (causing the package version to be bumped to 1.3). Leaving open in case you want to backport.

    NB: still needs testing on Windows; I've added some syntactic tests, but they could be wrong...
