What about speed of development, and speed of change?

One of the pragmatic programmer guys recently suggested that software
development could become simple enough that you could have a dev on every
street corner. You'd walk down to the corner and ask for certain app, then get
it in a few hours.

Abstraction addiction can be a danger, but it also lets you put out working
code in a tiny amount of time, as well as later extend that code to add new
features in equally small amounts of time.

What if development time for new programs was measured in days not years?
