The _defaultClass only needs to become DemoPortal.LoginMember before a
Portal's LoginManager instance is created.

Therefore, you can leave the _defaultClass as LoginUser until the
"install" method of DemoPortalBase is called (PTKDemo/Portal.py).

In the "install" method, after creating a MembersClass(), set its
_defaultClass to LoginMember.

...or have I misunderstood something important? :-)
