creeping featuritis

creeping featuritis: /kree'ping fee'-chr-i:`t*s/ n. Variant of
   creeping featurism, with its own spoonerization: `feeping
   creaturitis'.  Some people like to reserve this form for the
   disease as it actually manifests in software or hardware, as
   opposed to the lurking general tendency in designers' minds.
   (After all, -ism means `condition' or `pursuit of', whereas
   -itis usually means `inflammation of'.)
