44. I thought Snape was still pretty obviously on Dumbledore's side.
Here's why:

1. Dumbledore has some reason to trust Snape absolutely.

2. Dumbeldore did not fear death and would not have begged Snape to spare him - his begging was for Snape to do something. And that something, I believe, was to deal Dumbledore the final blow which at once:

a. Prevented Malfoy from going down that ultimate bad path
b. Secured Snape's place in the Death Eaters (exactly where Dumbledore wants him)

3. Snape reacted so strongly to being called a coward - because he knows he's not a coward - in fact he is taking on the single most dangerous role in the entire fight against Valdemort.

4. He saved Harry yet again - by preventing him being killed by another Death Eater
