Let f(z) = P + I Q be the value of a complex function.
I remember that if P is constant and Q variable
(or P variable and Q constant)
then f can't be complex differentiable because the
Cauchy-Riemann conditions can't be met.
Hence Arg, Re, Im, Abs are not complex differentiable.
Curiously, Mathematica [5.0] doesn't refuse to evaluate Arg' :
In[1]:= Arg'[1 + 2 I] // N
Out[1]= -0.4
