I tend to agree, since begging would have exposed his feelings for Lily to Voldemort (and somehow, that doesn't seem like Snape's style to me). It is interesting that Voldemort would have granted Snape's request, but I'm guessing Snape phrased it in a clever way so as to persuade Voldemort to do it. I also agree that Voldemort didn't really try to hard to honor Snape's request, seeing as he killed her anyway. That would certainly give Snape another reason to hate Voldemort. I think Snape was integral in setting the magic up that protected Harry (though I don't believe this was ever his intention), since if he hadn't asked Voldemort to spare Lily, Voldemort would likely have just killed her without giving her a choice to stand aside. I believe it was Lily's choice to die in Harry's stead that activated Harry's protection. Without Snape, there would have been no choice.
