1. Is it possible, given that we are not paying for those reports, to 
customize the 'exclude_lines' definitions?  Without such, the idlelib 
measures are biased downward.

2. What do the colors of test files mean?  Every line of nearly all the 
idlelib test files are executed, but over half are red.

The Learn More page does not say anything about either.
