No. It's not working for paths. Only for value matching I've added regexp 
matching recently (developer version).

Also I think such a feature would be quite exhausting for the registry parser 
and would slow down things a lot. As of my knowledge Microsoft API does not 
provide regular expression registry key matching.

If you similar thing I would rather recommend writing custom script which you 
can call from WPKG using exec checks.
