I'd say that that is directly proportional to the utility of the test
suite ;-)

I've got [Devel::Cover] to measure coverage, and it (on [my trunk],
which is close to 1.0.17) says that my coverage is almost perfect:

File stmt bran cond sub time
---------------------------- ------ ------ ------ ------ ------ ------
blib/lib/Text/Markdown.pm 99.8 94.2 72.0 100.0 100.0
87.0 96.9

Which is *just wrong* - as I know there are piles of corner cases
that my tests don't adequately cover. :(

Probably a lesson to point out that automated coverage analysis isn't
too useful in some cases...
