[TIP] coverage.py with doctest.testfile

I've been using nose for coverage as Jason Pellerin described.  One
thing I just noticed is that the statistics seem to be affected by previous
runs on the same file.  I found that I could gradually increase my reported
coverage statistics by inserting and removing nothing but comments, so
that the line numbers moved around.

I'm getting around this by running this from a script that always begins
by removing the .coverage file.
