<Has anyone run into cases of "persist" being used as a transitive verb?
<The context is a white paper, written by a software engineer, for a
technical audience. The phrase is referring to information that "must be
persisted." <Ack! Ptoie!>

Maybe information could be kept, stored, maintained, retained, or preserved.
Good luck!
