Follow-up Comment #3, bug #56025 (project make):

Making the prefix visible is a good idea.  I think that it is more compelling
if *every* line is prefixed.  It creates a good contrast between recipe lines
and multi-line variable definitions.

Having to leave off a prefix or two is not to bad.

I didn't notice that blank lines were allowed in recipes.  (i.e. I never read
to the end of the paragraph.)  Blank lines introduce deceptive visual breaks,
where a visible prefix provides continuity.

Thanks for the consideration.
