[Bioperl-l] code coverage metrics

I recently sent Chris an email about an idea I had, quantifying (and
improving) the test coverage that we currently have on the bioperl
core. I know there's a list on the wiki  with a list of tests that
have low coverage and/or complete lack of tests. My idea was to
somehow standardize and automate the generation of this list,
preferably on a weekly basis initially. We can then more easily see
where help is needed and possible assign individual tasks to tackle
the most-suffering modules.
There are currently several very good CPAN modules that do this, like
Devel::Cover . Is there any objection if I kick this off and start
doing some work, aiming into creating a more detailed report on code
coverage using the current HEAD and test suite?
