I'm going to join in the whining about some of the new titles. Neglecting their Western European Christian leaning, some of the ordering seems to be ...odd...

Grand Inquisitor seems more like a job title than a rank. I'm not sure I'd want my rank to have connotations of being a high-level torturer; Inquisitors were also battlers agains orthodoxy, which seems, to me, to be more appropriate for a bondage-and-discipline language like Ada. "Beadle" is a minor religious official, but Pilgrim isn't even that -- it's just somebody on a pilgrimage (and we're all on a pilgrimage to greater Perl wisdom, no?)

Of course, getting no less than 28 rank titles is non-trivial, so I'd merely suggest replacing Grand Inquisitor with Primate and swap Saint and Pope. And maybe renaming Pilgrim to "Evangelist"...
