Thats not what I'm proposing. In point of fact the subclasses are
already in registry.py. 

I'm proposing to put the _instances_ there to allow things to register
with them rather than having to load all the code in the module the
instance currently is in.

I'd prefer to keep things distributed too. But I want to solve the
performance issue as well.

Another way would be to change from/extend the registration facility to
use a publish-and-respond event system.
