+1

Bonus points for whoever adds coverage reporting to our test suite, so
that we can get at least basic metrics of coverage by:

- docstrings
- doctests
- plain tests

Even if imperfect, having some kind of metric to trac progress on this
front would be useful, I think.

Nose does have a coverage plugin, but unfortunately it seems that
coverage and doctests don't totally play nice in nose:

(see comment in code).  I don't know enough about the details of this
to say much more...

Cheers,
