Presumably "rough consensus". As long as most people agree (as opposed
to total consensus, where *everyone* agrees), and as long as the code
can be made to run, perfection is a luxury hat the IETF doesn't strive
for. It's a form of "practicality beats purity" as it applies to
standards development.

The joke may be that this is only approximately correct spelling, as
well as only approximate consensus and approximately working code. Or
that might just be a transcription error.
