If I write something that works with Oracle, MySQL and SQLite, and  
the person running the coverage tool only has SQLite, then I question  
whether spending all the time and effort needed to mock out the MySQL/ 
Oracle stuff to get an arbitrary 100% coverage when the /point/ of  
the tests is to see whether I can talk to a real database.

I think that was what was being got at :-)
