I assume that you are joking.

If there were any truth at all to what you are saying, then your software architecture certainly should be revised. Sure requirements change, but not into a completely different problem. The basic task is still the same, and thre great majority of the modules stay unchanged. Those that are modified, are usuall functionally extended, or, for user/protocol interface modules, mostly reorganized. If every requirement change invalidates all tests for all modules and subsystems, then I would be scared to use your code for anytning at all.

Even if you are joking (which I certainly hope): Too often you see arguments very close to the one you make, but said in dead earnest. "This is just a temporary solution". "The testing procedures are not yet updated to account for the changes" etc. We should be very sensitive to that kind of arguments, and immediately set down our foot.

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
