hacked up adj.
Sufficiently patched, kluged, and tweaked
that the surgical scars are beginning to crowd out normal tissue
(compare critical mass). Not all programs that are hacked
become `hacked up'; if modifications are done with some eye to
coherence and continued maintainability, the software may emerge
better for the experience. Contrast hack up.
