+Note that this implementation requires that the names be unique, as it uses
+a dictionary to hold the classes by name.
+The name in the registry can be overridden via the 'name' attribute of the
+class, and the 'priority' attribute controls priority. The prioritized()
+method returns the registered classes in priority order.
+Subclasses of ClassRegistry may define an 'implemented' property to exert
+control over whether the class will be added to the registry (e.g. to keep
+abstract base classes out of the registry)."""
