lets try again :)
I like to create a new type called Person for use in deco, based on the 
Page type.

There is a way of doing this by hand:
- click Add
- name it Person
Looking at: http://localhost:8080/Plone/dexterity-types
There are now 2 types, one called Page, and the second called Person.

When i add a field to the Person type: 
It is also added to the Page type and that is something i don't want.

When i create a new type in code i'm not able to inherit it from the 
Page(FTI) type.
Module plone.app.page.content, line 34, in setDefaultLayoutForNewPage
ValueError: Cannot find layout template for person
