[TIP] What's status.dat doing in coverage.py's HTML report?

I've recently moved to Fossil. It has this feature where some files from
the repository (or even the current checkout) can be served by the web
server. This is great for showing stuff like build output, including
coverage data.

So I changed my coverage.py line to dump output in that directory and put
the output under source control... And then I saw that this status.dat
file, filled with binary data got added.

What's it doing there and what's the consequences of removing it?

thanks in advance
