> I suspect that what people want is for it to be cheaper, easier and quicker to get someone else to do it for them. That is the modern way, sadly.

Every job is quicker the second time you do it. If someone who has done the job umpteen times can do it in a fraction of the time it takes me, then what's wrong with paying them to do it? It's merely specialisation and it's far from modern, since it dates back to the development of agriculture and permanent settlements.
