Errr... no. If you look at the context, "kludge" seems far more appropriate than "kluge" here.

Or, do you mean the TMRC definition of "a crock that works"? If so, I tend to see it as more as the "clever trick to solve a nasty case" of kluge, instead... *shrug*

That's not "kludge", that's "cludgie", with two syllables,
and with a well-known linguistic origin, even if no-one is
quite sure of the long-term etymology:
It may or may not be related to "kluge"/"kludge".
