I presume there is already a dead registry entry problem if someone simply deletes the pythonxy directory.  (I know, very bad idea.)  On the other hand, deleting a git repository directory *is* the thing to do.  While listing entries and paths, py could check that the path exists and delete the registry entry if it does not.

I have no idea how easy it would be to expand to more than x.y and x.y-32.  For myself, this is not immediately an issue as I install 64 bit versions and build the default 32 bit debug versions.
