    Working with simple python types is useful, but the real power of
    ZODB comes out when you store your own kinds of objects in the
    database.  For example, consider a class that represents a

      from Persistence import Persistent

      class Employee(Persistent):

          def setName(self, name):
              self.name = name

       I get the message

       Error Value: exceptions.ImportError on import of "Persistent" from "Persistence" is unauthorized in '', at
       line 15, column 11
       I am the zope administrator and I am running it in a Win98, therefore shouldn't be problems with the
       I am running it in a Python script that I call from a dtml page. Is there any problem with this? somebody can
       tell me why I get this problem?
