Where does the Windows 7 taskbar store its data?

I'm aware of c:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar for pinned applications, but what I would like to do is for example add some pinned pages to IE like I can do with Frequent pages.

I do hope it's not in the registry...

Most of the data is stored in the registry under here, but it's not easily editable.
