I'm not sure, but let me just give you enough info to get started. 
ZClasses have a "property sheets" tab where you can add sheets.  Group
relevant properties together.

Then go to the ZClass "Views" tab and add your property sheets to the
list of views of your objects available through the management
interface.  Voila--not only do your class instances have configurable
properties with defaults, but the management interface lets you set
them.  And the effort required was minimal.

I also avoid it because its behavior is not completely obvious, thus
even if I understand it, someone else who has to maintain my work later
may shoot him/herself in the foot with the bullet I've provided!
