Well of course the scaffold analogy doesn't really represent TDD very well - we don't "dismantle" the tests after development ceases, they are kept to make regression testing and maintenance as easy as possible. It that analogy, the scaffold is essentially "painted with invisible paint" rather than dismantled - it doesn't detract from the appearance or function of the building, but we don't need to assemble it all again if we want to repaint the building.
