[Mono-osx] Import windows registry file (.reg)

I suggest you create an abstract interface to your "data store". In
Windows it happens to be implemented using the registry. In OSX it is
implemented using XML or SQLite or something like that. So hide the
storage implementation behind your own API in a module that you can swap
for different platforms.
