The CVS RegistryClient.py can safely be used; there are no compatibility 
issues with the released service.

As for whether you should use the CVS code, apply this rule of thumb:  
If you are experienced enough to understand the code changes, and how to 
apply them and remove them if necessary, and report problems that may 
occur, you can use the CVS code.  Otherwise, please don't.  It 
complicates our efforts in supporting the code when the user has 
modified this or that code from what we would expect to see in a release.

This file will replace, on Windows, "C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\AccessGrid3\AccessGrid\Registry\RegistryClient.py", or on Linux, "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/AccessGrid/Registry/RegistryClient.py".

I have no experience of doing the same thing on Linux - Linux users should be aware that the CVS is for the ANL release, which is usually Windows and Mac.
