User/app preferences api?

Is there some api in DWT for user preferences or persistent app 
settings?  Like something that would use the Windows registry under 
win32 and ~/.something files on Linux?

I was using dfl.registry for this previously.

And if not in DWT, maybe someone can recommend a small lib that would 
take care of this?  I just want to avoid re-inventing the wheel of 
trying to figure out the right platform-specific place to store such 
stuff and deciding on storage formats etc.  I don't care if it doesn't 
use the Registry on windows, but on Windows it should figure out that 
files go into %HOME% if it is set and exists and otherwise into 
c:\documents and settings\username, etc.
