I generally agree with the comments you've made here, except for this
paragraph.  Don't subclass Portal (ever, preferably ;).  Just make an
entirely new class which implements IPBRoot.  If appropriate (as it
likely will be), let that class wrap a Portal instance.  eg,

    portal = Portal(...)
    factory = PBServerFactory(YourRoot(portal))
