I'm with Marc: never.

Why not? Because you will not find the time to go back and correct it - it will be permanent. That's why I "do it right" even for throwaway apps: parameterized queries, proper names, no default control names from Visual Studio, and so forth.

Do it right all the time, and you don't get into bad habits which enter production cycle.
