The component registry is not intended as a dumping ground for 
random global variables.  I am not sure if the particular usage 
above was ever supported behavior (I am inclined to think not, 
but tpc was some heinous stuff, so who knows), but it is definitely 
no longer supported.

Replace the argument to getComponent and the first argument to 
setComponent with an interface (a subclass of zope.interface.Interface),
or just skip components entirely and use a boring dictionary:

import myproject
counter = myproject.globals.get(Counter, None)
if counter is None:
    counter = myproject.globals[Counter] = Counter()

Hope this helps,
