No, I didn't thanks.  That page indicates these things are to be used for
*cross*-referencing, i.e., what we're using single backticks for; my guess
is that someone used the :mod: before all our mark-up policies were
settled.  So, I'm removing it; if someone later explains to me why it should
be there, I'll put it back in.

Mathematician: noun, someone who disavows certainty when their uncertainty
set is non-empty, even if that set has measure zero.

Hope: noun, that delusive spirit which escaped Pandora's jar and, with her
lies, prevents mankind from committing a general suicide.  (As interpreted
by Robert Graves)
