I think I have a simple solution. I haven't looked at all of the places
that *PersistKey is used, but it appears that we can simply make persistKey
a PersistValue, and get rid of the toPersistKey and fromPersistKey
I am only half-way through my coffee this morning, but it seems like this
could solve all of our problems. Am I off in left field here?
