Well, the registry has an API, we're using that API correctly. So if
some tools can't handle our entries there, it's really not our fault.

Besides: I think you're the only one who wants to export those settings
and apply them on other computers. Because for that to work, you must
force every user to have the exact same folder structure on their
harddrive. Otherwise the paths won't match.

':' is part of a path. Example: "C:\"

'|' is a valid char for paths too (you can create such files if you want
to), 'wide space' is valid too.

We'd have to write a parser for that to work. And honestly, I don't want
to do that just for a feature you shouldn't be using in the first place
(forcing users to have the same dir layout is bad, because you won't
catch hardcoded paths in your sourcecode).
