disagreements with it have to rest largely with hidden difficulties in "software development", such as understanding and modeling many different systems well enough to develop algorithms specialized for them (which seems like it's almost circularly "AGI complete").

What do you make of that objection? (I agree with it. I think programming efficiently and flexibly across problem domains is probably AGI-complete.)
