Just a question:  Wouldn't it make sense to use a syntax as rcp/scp:

  regtool get bumba:\machine\software\microsoft\...

This together with the capability to use forward slashes looks
more unixy:

  regtool get bumba:/machine/software/microsoft/...

In this context I see for the first time, that the usage doesn't
say anything about using forward slashes.   Shouldn't we add a word
that this is possible, too?
