I had responded privately to the original poster at great length. I'd like to share one portion of
my reply with the list.

In time, I see the situation changing. It used to be that programmers (especially the good ones) were
hard to come by. That is why they got preferential treatment. Now, more and more people enter the
programming profession every day. We don't yet have enough programmers to meet all the job openings,
but I foresee a time when there will be a glut on the market. When that happens, things will even out.
