Not quite a complete crap shoot, but certainly close.  With enough detail, you can calculate and predict how things will play out, but yeah, getting 100% even coverage indoors is next to impossible.  With proper placement, you can usually achieve decent sound in the areas that matter.  But, as you stated, sometimes proper placement too has to be compromised, as something else may need to be in place of where that speaker sits.

For small venues, this is where experience kicks in more than anything. It's not practical to model each and every room, and different things like wall materials, ceiling patterns, etc make that nearly impossible.  Intuitively knowing that moving a sub a couple feet one way or another can change the sound dramatically is something that can be learned over time so that when you walk into a room you can drop speakers in locations that will give you 'good enough' results.
