       I would like to build a ZClass that inherits from class SessionDataManager of the Session product, but no
       such class shows in the base classes list. Are there any techniques to make it became a base class extensible
       by ZClasses?
       The strange thing is that further on an __init__.py example shows how to register a class so to make it
       available to ZClasses for inheriting, and the __init__.py file of the Session product follows such
       registration directives!
       To be honest, it calls context.registerClass(), not context.registerBaseClass().
       Maybe that's the point? Can I overcome this editing __init__.py and changing
       context.registerClass() to context.registerBaseClass()?
