Description Pádraig Brady 2013-10-16 17:29:17 EDT
/usr/bin/coverage is too generic a name for this python specific tool.
More over debian/ubuntu use /usr/bin/python-coverage.
To to avoid divergence here, I suggest to use that name,
and for compat (to be phased out) provide a symlink from
/usr/bin/coverage -> python-coverage
