1.2.3 Create and Make

The standard SDL prefix for creating a new instance of a type is create. The standard Guile prefix is make. Wherever an SDL function uses the create prefix we will keep it. Object creation functions unique to Guile, such as make-rect, will use make as a prefix. In addition, we will sometimes introduce higher-level creation functions, such as make-surface, which is a wrapper to create-rgb-surface which provides useful default values from the current screen information.
