I was playing with Ned Batchelder's module today.  Once I 
stopped screwing around trying to get the "easy install" stuff to work and 
just copied the danged .py file to my site-packages directory, I was up and 
running in a few minutes.

I suppose there's a lot of bells and whistles you could add, but it ran my 
code and told me which lines had executed and which hadn't.  That pretty 
much seems like what you want a code coverage tool to do.
