Thanks for reinforcing my generally positive view of present-day
Catholics compared to their Protestant brethren.  I should think if
anyone were taught demonology these days, it would be kids in Catholic
school, since as I understand it, Christian demonology was an enterprise
unique to the Catholic church.  By the time the Protestant Reformation
rolled around, it was no longer necessary for Christians to *invent*
demons; there were plenty to slaughter in sectarian wars.

The Pratchett names weren't my suggestion; if they're adopted, then I
cannot claim the credit for proposing them.
