I would like to discuss the fact that this patch is a new feature.

In the current state, CPython handles the `REG_QWORD` type as an unkown type and returns the raw registry value: a string of size 8.
In my opinion this behavior does not match the Windows documentation (REG_QWORD: A 64-bit number)
or CPython's own behavior regarding REG_DWORD that returns a Python `int` (more important).

Is this enough to consider this a bugfix ? and therefore port it to 2.7 ?
