 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.
