In itself, it doesn't, but that caching mechanism I mentioned in my last email
uses it (I just went and read the source in twisted/web/script.py)

And the scope of the registry is one per top-level static.File instance; i.e.,
if you have a web server set up with `mktap web --path foo', then there will
only be one Registry unless you create some static.Files explicitly elsewhere.
