|Ah, well I remember when "make" was first introduced (in PWB?); I thought

|Trivia: what does "make love" say on your system? My Mac boringly says

Schily make is even melodramatic and/or digital:
?1[steffen at wales tmp]$ smake love
smake: Can't find any source for 'love'.
smake: Couldn't make 'love'.
