I don't know where to fit this, because it is more a meta question about LaTeX so it does not fit on the main site, but it does also not fit here because meta should be about Tex.SE. Anyways I feel, that meta always has a more informal character and therefore I ask here. Now to the question:
I have the feeling that in LaTeX some functionality is like a kludge and that the original system was not designed for it (for example image display).
Is it just me or do you feel, that LaTeX is extremely messy, too?
