My favorite development problem: redesign this application to fix a problem The Right Way, or use a quick-and-dirty fix that solves the problem in 5 minutes (vs a week-long project)... if this were open source, I'd do the former. When my employer cares about financial efficiency, the 5-minute fix gets priority. Even if we later find we need to Do It Right, the 5-minute fix cost almost nothing to try.
But I feel empty and unsatisfied afterwards.
