Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  hairy adj. 1. Annoyingly complicated. "{DWIM is incredibly hairy." 2.
     Incomprehensible. "{DWIM is incredibly hairy." 3. Of people,
     high-powered, authoritative, rare, expert, and/or incomprehensible. Hard
     to explain except in context: "He knows this hairy lawyer who says
     there's nothing to worry about." See also hirsute.
  
     There is a theorem in simplicial homology theory which states that any
     continuous tangent field on a 2-sphere is null at least in a point.
     Mathematically literate hackers tend to associate the term `hairy' with
     the informal version of this theorem; "You can't comb a hairy ball
     smooth." (Previous versions of this entry associating the above informal
     statement with the Brouwer fixed-point theorem were incorrect.)
  
     The adjective `long-haired' is well-attested to have been in slang use
     among scientists and engineers during the early 1950s; it was equivalent
     to modern `hairy' senses 1 and 2, and was very likely ancestral to the
     hackish use. In fact the noun `long-hair' was at the time used to
     describe a person satisfying sense 3. Both senses probably passed out of
     use when long hair was adopted as a signature trait by the 1960s
     counterculture, leaving hackish `hairy' as a sort of stunted mutant
     relic.
  
     In British mainstream use, "hairy" means "dangerous", and
     consequently, in British programming terms, "hairy" may be used to
     denote complicated and/or incomprehensible code, but only if that
     complexity or incomprehesiveness is also considered dangerous.
