How is it hidden? In every makefile you have two write something like

if <MAKEFLAGS need adjustment>
include make-re-executor.make


# your code here


This is ugly. If I needed this feature in a project that otherwise
uses vanilla make I would think twice before patching make. But in
my case Rubicon is already crossed.
