[TIP] Getting py.test to output xcoverage/cobertura format data (and play nice with Hudson)

Keep in mind that once you run coverage with the py.test plugin, there 
is a .coverage data file left behind.  That file can then be used to 
generate reports directly from coverage, outside of any test runner.  So 
once you've run your tests, use "coverage xml" to create an XML file 
from the .coverage data file.
