= Q =
[common] Describes a crock
put together under time or user pressure. Used esp. when you
want to convey that you think the fast way might lead to trouble
further down the road. "I can have a quick-and-dirty fix in place
tonight, but I'll have to rewrite the whole module to solve the
underlying design problem." See also kluge.
