Hi Rudolf,

as to your question when to use an inline src block:

I use it particularly in documents that present results from data sets. For 
instance, when you
calculate something (e.g., an average value), you can store it in a variable 
=foo= (e.g., in R,
python etc., just make sure you use the :session parameter) and access =foo= in 
an inline source
block (that uses the same :session parameter). This allows you to avoid having 
hardcoded numbers in
your documents - when the data changes, so do all the numbers in your text.

As to the naming: begin_src also uses underscores, so I guess the naming scheme 
is fine...

Hope this helps!

Best regards
