I think part of the thing is that it is not clear that the intangibles
*are* covered and that the salaries being quoted are not sufficient to
compensate for (doing web development|maintaining an awful code base|
putting up with crap management) which seems to be the perception that
people have of most of the jobs we are seeing and something no-one seems
to be stepping forward to counter.
