Which doesn't solve the problem, because good programmers write bugs too.
And the best software engineers have no idea how to prevent them.

Worse still, no one knows how to objectively distinguish good programmers
from bad programmers. Any such licensing mechanism is likely to descend into
a "Microsoft-Certified" farce.

P.S. Anyone can call themselves a progammer, and by the end of this century,
standards of spelling will have descended to the level where no-one notices.
