syn feedback

Hello, Roberto.

We use syn for all our registry needs even after our need to handle
splits has gone away due to changing requirements because it's so
reliable and easy to use.

One feature that my team is missing is the ability to register a process
multiple times under different keys. We have been helping ourselves by
spawning "forwarders" that register on behalf of our process and die
with it.

(If this got implemented in the meantime then we've missed it. Our
infrastructure requires us to freeze our libraries for long time periods
and so whatever version works for us gets used for a long time. We even
patch warnings ourselves when we change to a newer elixir version.)

Thanks for syn, it really helps our work!
