No; the registry is now per-user. I don't think changing the timestamp
would trigger a re-read; it seems the registry keeps the file size of
the plugin as well as what looks like a checksum:
Basically, it's a cache, and it's currently not built around the
assumption that the "uri_protocol"s supported by a plugin can change
without the plugin changing.
While it's an interesting problem WRT to updating this list, it's only
a real life problem with http support which has been bugging us in
plenty of apps since it's not supported by default anymore. I think it
makes sense to revert this change and move back the http module to
the default list of gnome-vfs-2.0 modules.
