Fully-qualified names is fine by me.
I'd rather not have to use the colon; it seems distinctly different
from the way things get described in the Python Library Reference
(where phrases like "in module frobnaltz" are added to index entries,
for instance). But I could live with it.
It sounds like we're in reasonable agreement on this.
