No-one said the Kluge family name could not be pronounced any way they want to pronounce it. Kludj, Klooj, or even Kllooogy, for that matter. It's all whimsy and borogrove when it comes to perspnal preferences, and chacun a son mauvais gout, if you see what I mean.
But kludge is an engineering term, a word with backbone, metrics and discipline behind it. So please keep your sloppy Valley-girl humanism on its own side of the room, okay?
