The difficulty that coverage faces is not measuring python programs started from the command line like this, you can use "coverage run" or "python -m coverage run".

The difficulty is when there are subprocesses running python programs.  Read for the two current hacks used to invoke coverage on subprocesses.  If -C is implemented, it should have a PYTHONRUNFIRST environment variable (or the like) to make these hacks unnecessary.
