On the other hand, I see no reason why the prefix trick doesn't apply here.
We know that /jIHvaD bIjatlh/ = /qajatlh/, and we know that the prefix trick
works with imperatives (/ro'qegh 'Iwchab HInob/), so why not here too?

jIHvaD yIQum!

(I don't LIKE the prefix trick, but it's a reality . . . .)
