    At this point, I enjoy writing tests almost as much as greenfield code and much more than dealing with legacy code.

Right .. and I find tests give you a much more nuanced understanding of what the module does, and really clarifies your thinking. I believe legacy code with tests would be a lot less scary than what you usually see, code without tests.
