As a profession, we have two choices:
1. start licensing and accrediting ourselves, with a structure we can
live with, OR
2. wait for Some Really Bad Shit to happen, with a software defect as
the root cause, and have the politicians force something upon us...
something baroque, bureaucratic and onerous.

I know which I would prefer.
