This is an interesting question :)  If you don't mind me asking, why do 
you want the covered lines, and why don't the existing reports suit your 
need?  The XML report is the most machine-readable, you might find that 
easier than dealing with the annotated files.

The standard library isn't covered unless you ask for it with the 
--pylib switch on "run".
