My first reaction is "orthogonal vector field". I used a different name but I just gave a lecture related to them yesterday.

@JoonasIlmavirta It is election graffiti standing for, "oro vos faciatis", followed by accusatives of [candidate] and [job]. Translated to "I beg you to make [somebody] into [something]," why isn't it an infinitive, "facere"--"to make"?

@tony Because it's not true that facere = "the make".
There are circumstances where the corresponding English verb is something different. Examples include "to esteem/consider/value" and "to select to office" or "to confer a degree".
You should consult your dictionary for facere to get an idea of the variety.
And I realise that I answered the wrong question. The infinitive wouldn't work grammatically. What you have here is a subordinate clause without a conjunction.
"I pray you so that you select me as your mayor."
Half following a conference talk and half typing a chat message leads to both failing. To be a proper scientist, I had to reverify the effect.

@JoonasIlmavirta Thank you for explaining it. Did the conference go well?

@tony Yes, to the small extent I was there. I had to take a bit of a rock star approach this time, coming in for my own talk and then running off.
