Remove RCov support in 3.0. SimpleCov is a much better tool.

SimpleCov only supports Ruby 1.9. I think as long as we officially support 1.8 we should continue to support rcov for Ruby 1.8 only. WDYT?

I think RCov only gives us pain via the Rake task (there are a handful of open issues for it), as you have pointed out: #447

Feel free to close this.

FWIW, I use simplecov with RSpec all the time, and it's dead-simple to use, even without any official RSpec support. Given that, I'd recommend against any explicit simplecov support since it's not needed and would add some additional unneeded coupling.

But yes, at some point, we should drop RCov support...it's a matter of when.

I agree. Notice I said remove not replace :)
