The majority of this sounds great. Thanks!

While it's still in beta is probably a good time to raise this: Can this
be changed before releasing 3.0? Misnomers, especially a ‘foo.py’ that's
not actually a Python source file but a distribution name, are to be
avoided. Can't this just be named “Coverage”?
