Soldering TQFP isn't so bad, once you know how to cheat! I'm not saying it's easy, it's just not demoniacally hard.

SMD Soldering Guide by Infidigm

Instead of using a sucker, use some "Solder-Wick" or copper braid for desoldering. It leaves behind just enough to make contact, but slurps up everything extra!

Takes a little bit to get use to this method, but you don't go blind doing it!
