Is this a reasonable test of registry cleaner effectiveness?

I've always been fond of CCleaner for its one-click approach to registry cleaning and crap removal (and some nice uninstall and startup management tools). I'm realistic about it, though, and appreciate that it's probably more productive of a sense of tidiness than actual improvements. But! This chap did a test and found some significant benefits from taking a computer that had been loaded up with rubbish and then had the rubbish manually uninstalled. So my question is this - is the methodology of his test basically sound? Would it change your mind if you thought registry cleaners are a waste of time?
