I’ve got several good comments on my post  A good answer or a fast answer .

Among others, I’ve noticed the one from Prashant of Agile Analysis blog .

Let me quote the core of his comment: 

Mind you, a dirty solution is not a wrong one – it is simply not the ideal one.It just means we take on technical debt or have a manual workaround.

I agree with his point: a dirty solution is not (necessary) a wrong one.

And as a general rule I prefer to think that making a technical debt is wrong! And … having someone in the team who’s able to decide when it’s time to make that mistake is a GREAT value.
