Chris, unfortunately I have to disagree with you. Even if sometimes constructing an object
is a 
little more difficult, IMO it is much more important to have clear separation of concerns.
And this 
constructor is breaking it: a PersistenceManager should not have to deal or know how to parse
files. This is the responsibility of something else.

Please do correct me if I am wrong.
