[luatex] Reading registry to find Windows fonts

An issue was raised recently, from a user who had fonts installed
under Windows, recognized by his softwares but not LuaTeX (nor XeTeX).
Apparently the fonts are installed through a mechanism documented by
MS consisting in adding the font in the list of fonts in the Windows
Lua has several modules allowing to read the registry, there's an entry
in the FAQ, and another module not listed in the FAQ.
As ConTeXt may also benefit from reading the registry (there's a ConTeXt
user in ), what do you think would be the best solution to access the
registry from LuaTeX? Should a module like lua-winreg be distributed (as
a dll) in TeXLive? Should it be built in LuaTeX?
Thank you very much,
