Random quotes from The Hacker's Dictionay

wart n. 

 A small, crocky feature that sticks out
of an otherwise clean design.  Something conspicuous for
localized ugliness, especially a special-case exception to a
general rule.  For example, in some versions of csh(1),
single quotes literalize every character inside them except
!.  In ANSI C, the ?? syntax used for obtaining ASCII
characters in a foreign environment is a wart.  See also
miswart.
