This idea was too good not to include in the main project.

On edge, Radiant will call new_with_defaults when creating a new page:

That allows your Page subclasses to initialize their parts and fields.

The core doesn't, however, have things like descriptions for parts or
rake tasks to sync things up.

Does that simplify PageFactory in any way? (I haven't tried it in a while)
