I don't that is easily possible. The coverage report depends on GCC and
its gcov extension -- so much for Windows. I also don't know if gcov
supports cross-profiling on varying platforms and operating systems.

By the way gcov understands preprocessor output. It doesn't report lines
as uncovered when the lines or functions are #ifdef-ed out.
