Said of something that functions, but in a slightly strange,
klugey way. It does the job and would be difficult to
change, so its obvious non-optimality is left alone. Often
used to describe interfaces. The more bugs something has that
nobody has bothered to fix because workarounds are easier, the
funkier it is. TECO and UUCP are funky. The Intel
i860's exception handling is extraordinarily funky. Most
standards acquire funkiness as they age. "The new mailer is
installed, but is still somewhat funky; if it bounces your
mail for no reason, try resubmitting it." "This UART is
pretty funky. The data ready line is active-high in interrupt
mode and active-low in DMA mode."
