One option would be to write a backend that uses one of the various
configuration systems in Unix that use a separate process to arbitrate
access to the information.

Perhaps you can use dconf.

Since the registry lives in mscorlib, and this would bring a number of
dependencies , I recommend to make this a loadable plugin.
