The coverage thing does this right now:

  1. Read all files in the --cover dir
  2. attach the coverage hook to apply to /.*/

This is unnecessarily costly. Also, it's using a bunch of sync io, which needs to be factored out.

It'd be better to just apply the coverage hook to the --cover dir, so it works without the second read.

Not using that coverage mechanism any more. nyc will be providing coverage soon.
