The "productive developer" bit about mostly writing new code is a pipe dream.

Depends on the project, I guess...

Do you really think you write code more than you read it? I suppose if you mainly work solo on projects you might do "write only" programming. I'd still think that later on in he project you would be editing more than writing brand new code from scratch. I work mostly in embedded C, so ymmv, but even when I'm doing python scripts I edit way more than I write.
