The main problem is that the advertised API says you should do:
from plone.registry import Record
from plone.registry import field
registry['foo.bar'] = Record(field.TextLine(), u"my value")
Here, field.TextLine derives from PersistentField which derives from
Persistent, and Record derives from Persistent also.
If I wanted to get rid of the Persistent base, I'd have to make a new
"tree" of field types (the standard zope.schema ones still need some
subclassing), and a new Record class with a less obvious name.
