No, it's using Python's 'coverage' module.

The configuration isn't particularly natural to Buildbot - if you look
at the steps (or the config itself[1]), you'll see that it's basically
a big shell script.

I'm sure C++ and Java coverage could be done similarly, using
language-specific tools.  I think the GCC suite has a "gcov" utility
that is even cross-language.
