It's rather inconsistent with "clean" which puts the qualifier first.

It's worth mentioning that I've already added

make check-maybe

to master, and it is consistent with that.

check-maybe is often much faster than make check. The heuristic it
uses for identify which tests should run will break, of course, but it's
probably quick enough to run on a pre-commit hook most of the time.
