I agree.  The common case will be people starting to use Apache on NT as a
replacement for IIS.  In this case the registry makes sense.  A secondary
case will be people using Apache on NT for testing things locally, with the
intent of hosting for real on Unix.  In this case the shebang makes sense.  

I would also advocate caching the response from the registry; apparently
it's not all that fast.

Server scope for now, if someone wants it to be finer they can write the
merge code.

>Thoughts on a directive name?
