      Jcov supports method, block and branch coverage but
      it requires to recompile Java program classes under -prof=jcov
      option of javac. This complicates jcov usage especially
      for such huge programs as JDK. To estimate JDK coverage
      test engineer should modify JDK build process to compile
      all classes with -prof=jcov. It's not an easy task.
      It would be good to have more simple way for coverage estimation
      that would not require class recompilation. For example,
      it would be fine to estimate only method coverage in such a mode.
      It could give an easy way to estimate method API coverage of JDK
      using any regular shipped code.
