I will agree that there is a lot of software out there with all kinds of things wrong. But I do not think that you should need a license to be a paid programmer.
Say I got hired as a Perl programmer tomorrow.
I would be unemployed in two weeks, tops.
I simply am not that good yet.
That would become obvious, and I would be (hopefully politely) asked to leave.
If management has their eyes open, and cares, then only programmers that knew what they were doing would be hired. But as we all know, management is often blind and/or doesn't care.
