Scripting DSN's

I know how to use the registry to create DSN's under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI and have been doing it for years. We are jumping into 64 bit/Win 7 and converting a lot of old scripts to powershell. Does anyone know of a simpler way to do it in powershell than simpley adding the registry keyes?

Er...how much simpler can it be than adding registry data?

I'm still a bit green with PS but, AFAIK, there is no ODBC-specific stuff, except what's in .Net, which PS can access in a pretty straightforward way. Whether anyone could describe that as "easy" compared to registry access is open to debate.

It is being drilled into my head that Powershell can make life so much better. Was just poking around to see if powershell made this easier also.
