Hey Daniel

I tried to do this a while ago with 'lcov' --
http://ltp.sourceforge.net/coverage/lcov.php -- but didn't have any
success (due to something about the way 'gcov' works). If you (or anyone
else) managed to work out a way of doing the coverage reporting but with
gcov or another GCC-related tool for compiled languages, I'd be very

In the general case, it would be nice if there were a mechanism for
getting this set of HTML pages back from the buildslave to the buildbot,
so that any buildslave (not just localhost) can make this kind of
reporting. I vaguely remember hearing someone on the list talking about
such a mechanism but not sure.
