Better persistence behavior for unsupported object types

The persistence mechanism serializes object values using toString() and restores them by looking for a constructor that takes a single String parameter. Some types of objects may not comply with this assumption: e.g., In this case, we should avoid persisting the object values at all.

A workaround is to label the parameter with "persist=false" but requiring that all the time will be highly unintuitive for users.

See ticket #810 for an example of this situation.

(In [4322]) Fix up parameter attributes.

Set visibility to private when possible. For ImageDisplay parameters,
set to required=true and persist=false, to avoid runtime exceptions.
