My comment was about the behavior of `winreg.QueryValueEx`. The current behavior is:

>>> import winreg
>>> tstkey = winreg.OpenKey(winreg.HKEY_CURRENT_USER, "TestKey")
>>> winreg.QueryValueEx(tstkey, "MYDWORD") # a REG_DWORD value
(16909060, 4)
>>> winreg.QueryValueEx(tstkey, "MYQWORD") # a REG_QWORD value
(b'\x08\x07\x06\x05\x04\x03\x02\x01', 11)

With this patch the new behavior would be:

>>> winreg.QueryValueEx(tstkey, "MYQWORD") # a REG_QWORD value
(72623859790382856, 11)

I agree that exposing REG_QWORD is a new feature.
