FWIW, DZone's refcard for agile and software quality put TDD and unit tests way up, and functional tests way down.
It might be worth considering another point as well. Someone mentioned that the most common problems he saw was missed requirements. Well, clearly, he wasn't using an Agile methodology. With Agile, the user select specific requirements to develop at each interaction, which makes it impossible for the developers to "forget" one of them, and the short interactions help the user notice that he forgot about some requirement. But I'm really going off-topic with this.
