I don't think that this can be a reliable code-analysis tool in the general case. Too many programs contain complex initialization routines that use a lot of code and make coverage output not very useful.

At times enabling or disabling something during a text will only differ in a small, barely invisible routine call when looking at the coverage logs.
Using coverage for analysis has its merits, but it requires some a-priori acquintance with the code.
