I hope this question won't be closed as too subjective. I'd like to know best practice – how to make traces on universal PCB's with individual holes without traces (like the following image). My idea is to bend the ends of discrete components and use them to make traces to other components. Is this approach acceptable, or nasty? Although this is called "prototype" PCB, I'd like to use it for my simple final circuits (low frequency, low current applications), because I hope it will save time.
