-- getIdentifierQualifier returns the value of a qualifier for an Identifier
-- such as 'Art UK artist ID', P1367
-- the assumption is that one value exists for the property
-- and only one qualifier exists for that value
-- Constraint violations for P1367 are at:
-- https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Database_reports/Constraint_violations/P1367#Single_value

	-- The PropertyID of the qualifier
	-- whose value is to be returned is passed in named parameter |qual=
	local qualifierID = frame.args.qual
	
	-- Can take a named parameter |qid which is the Wikidata ID for the article.
	-- This will not normally be used because it's an expensive call.
