So I think you could make a case for architect as a verb, and feel like you are reviving an ancient word as opposed to following the modern trend toward creating verbs out of nouns. Maybe it's because my formal training is in mathematics that I've never bought into the silly neologisms and other abuses of language perpetrated by computer scientists.

The only thing that you achieve when you say "I 'architected' that system" is to jar the sensibilities of the normal people who hear you. Anybody who is remotely connected with your real audience understands that there's a difference between designing a system or subsystem and designing a module, and I promise that most people will think that you're cooler if you just say "I designed that system" than they would if you say "I 'architected' that system.
