The trick for `make_heap` is that there are multiple possible outputs (theoretically): heapifying `{1,2,3}` might give you `{3,1,2}` or it might give you `{3,2,1}`. Both possibilities are equally conforming, even though I would guess that all implementations really do the same thing in practice.

How much do we care about that? Do we mind hard-coding one of the outputs as "blessed"?

Anyway, I'm resisting out of laziness — couldn't someone else add ad-hoc tests in a separate commit? — but maybe it'd help to see an example of the kind of test you're thinking of. I mean would it just be like this?

```
TEST_CONSTEXPR_CXX20 bool test_simple() {
int a[] = {5,2,4,1,3};
std::push_heap(a, a+5);
int expected[] = {5,3,4,1,2};
assert(std::equal(a, a+5, expected, expected+5));
return true;
}

TEST_CONSTEXPR_CXX20 bool test_simple() {
int a[] = {5,2,4,1,3};
std::pop_heap(a, a+5);
int expected[] = {4,2,3,1,5};
assert(std::equal(a, a+5, expected, expected+5));
return true;
}
```
