Yes, that's one of the more important items on the todo-list, to figure
out what to do with the nose plugin so that it can keep up with the
development of coverage.py. The best plan is for coverage.py to ship
the plugin rather than nose, so it can be kept in sync, but that hasn't
Remember that you can use coverage to run nose instead of the other way
coverage run c:\Python25\Scripts\nosetests-2.5-script.py
nose-arguments etc blah etc
This will measure the nose code also, but for interestingly-sized
