quick-and-dirty /adj./ 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.
