Often, I feel like a small wrapper python script that would be shelled out
would be *much simpler* to manage than the overhead of:
- Add registry query implementation and unit tests
- Add server-side logic to change VS exe path depending on the registry key
and unit tests
- Increased latency due to round-trips

I know it's not buildbot standard behavior, but that's what we do for almost
all our steps. Since our scripts are checked in and are sync on the slave
reboot, we don't need to restart/reconfigure the master to change the step's

My 2¢
