In V03 chapter 2 you write “This begs the question: when is it a good idea to use the qualified style (with the module name prefixed) over the unqualified style?”. While I know that “begging the question” colloquially means “raising the question” instead of its original meaning from logic, you'll save yourself two angry emails if you change it to “raises the question”. smilie

Yeah, maybe three emails <s>

"Begging the question" (petitio principii) means to assume a fact without support (generally a negative thing). The question that it "begs", or omits, is, "What is the evidence for that ?".

Religious arguments about brace-placement pale in the face of grammar wonks <s>
