reading your answer makes me think i was unclear, sorry!

my situation is that i have a piece of code that collects directories
and then initializes the registry by calling i-s-r.

and then i have another piece of code later on where i would like to
add one more directory to the registry.

i couldn't find any other way to do that than the kludge in my
previous mail.

thanks for the note! it will probably come handy when i get to port my
registry initialization to the new way.

but first i wanted to get an impression whether i want/should/need to
do that. with your mail i'm leaning more towards a yes now, which
renders the original question somewhat moot.

same here... :)
