• but most hobbyists act like SMD soldering is kryptonite.

    Yeah - I've seen a 'test your SMD skills' thing you can buy, but actually it'd be pretty cool to have a 'learn SMD soldering' kit with a set of sample boards that do useful things - starting off big and getting smaller.

    As you say, as long as you have reasonably OK tools (and some solder wick) it's really not that hard
