    But how do you set up categories of people who need to be similarly paid?

    Employers already do this. Are you saying it's possible for one group to make the determination, but not others?

    If you've been out of college 10 years, now, you are not using the same development language, development environment, hardware or networking software you used when you graduated. And, yet, employers are capable of putting you into a category (such as Engineer II, or Senior Network Engineer).

    The experience you have is related to the TYPE of technologies you use, not the specific versions and brands. A really good developer has probably coded in several languages using multiple operating systems - and the thing that makes it possible for them to "piss out code" is experience with the types of algorithms that solve a particular type of problem that matters. Recognizing patterns is the key, not knowing one solution in one specific version of one specific language.
