Said of a design or revision that has been badly compromised
by a requirement to be compatible with fossils or
misfeatures in other programs or (especially) previous
releases of itself. "MS-DOS 2.0 used as a path separator
to be bug-compatible with some cretin's choice of / as an
option character in 1.0."
