Funny, for me it's exactly the other way around: when I see a repair
shop which is dirty and with tools and parts strewn around I think: They
are doing acual work here. When I see a clean and orderly shop I tend to
think: They care about appearances, rather than getting the work done.

This very much differs from how I view the /result/ of the work: here I
regard everything that has not been done in a clean and orderly fashion
as deficient. (And that goes for software, too, especially if it is mature.)
