<jargon, programming> Describes a crock put together under time or user
pressure. Used especially 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."
