Project PEA - test coverage with a magnifying glass

Matt Harrah recently wrote about his new toy: Project PEA. This thing is like test coverage reporting with a magnifying glass. Matt, Jeff Richley and I have had conversations in the past about the topic and the way test coverage reporting tools can give you a false sense of security.
