Update registry_key resource to manage permissions on Windows registry keys

Managing permissions on registry keys is something all of our in-house applications use to assure least-privileged user rights in HKLM.

The file and directory resources contain a great model for managing these rights. Having matching functionality extended to registry keys would avoid the use of resources such as execute to run external tools like SetACL.
