Device detection?

This is not my idea, and I'm not claiming credit for it. Someone brought
this up in IRC. sorry i forgot who it was....

What do people think about writing code that will derive users hardware
information from the Windows registry? While this obviously doesn't work as
well as real detection, it can potentially help a lot of people who are
migrating from the Windows realm.

Is this feasible? Are people interested in doing this? Is there
documentation out there about the registry format?

I'd be willing to work on this, though I probably won't get to it for a few

comments welcome, flames to /dev/null please :)
