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...
