And Jason's oked scribe->sage via IRC, so we'll go with these. I'll update
the glossary; if you're eligible for a different cloak than you have now
and want to switch, let Eric or me know.
ruskie pointed out apprentice was missing from the glossary, I'll add that
there but I'm not entirely sure how to define it if we aren't expecting to
keep a standing devel grimoire. I guess we will still have devel for
sorcery and cauldron... maybe we can just keep the apprentice/mentor
relationship going for those that want it and have them submit patches
instead of directly to devel. Or we could let them do their own WIP devel
