From an answer on another Stack Exchange website (StackOverflow):
Given how rare this will be, that ugly hack could be palpable.
It sounds like the author is saying that the solution might be viable? suitable? sufficient? I can deduce what he means from the context.
I am confused because having searched for the definition of the word "palpable" I cannot find an applicable definition. I like the word and if the usage is correct I might like to use it myself.
Did the author use the word "palpable" correctly? If so which definition is applicable?
