bug-compatible: adj. 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 (esp.)
   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."
