I doubt that's what he meant.  Test-driven development writes the tests
first, then changes the code.  Every feature begins as a failing test.  If
you enforce no failing tests, it means no new features or no test-driven

That said, IMO there is a place for mature code that can be expected to
pass all its existing tests.
