I'm going to be the heretic here, and claim the "kludgey" code should not be in the public repository of your library. It should either work properly, or be kept in your private repository until it can be fixed.

To give examples from other engineering fields, would you tolerate a building code which deems it acceptable that a building will collapse approximately 1 in a million times that you lock the front door? would you tolerate electronics that burst into flame approximately 1 in a billion times you switch them on? So why should your clients be expected to tolerate "kludgey" code?
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
