A kludge is a workaround or quick-and-dirty solution that is clumsy, inelegant, inefficient, difficult to extend and hard to maintain. It is a rough synonym to the term "jury rig." -Wikipedia
Always striving to create the cleanest, simplest, most elegant and uncluttered code keeps things running smoothly and makes future fine-tuning and updates a breeze.
Things done “un-kludgy” are better in the long run!
