Scheduling lcov code coverage script

One of the things I tried to communicate in my previous email, I perhaps
may have tried to convey in a too subtle a manner to be noticed. So I will
attempt to formulate it again in a slightly more explicit manner:

With the current state of this script, automated/scripted lcov code
coverage report generation has gone about as far as I can take it. If there
is any interest in having regularly scheduled runs of gcov/lcov code
coverage reports on 'make check' (or any other tests for that matter), Im
going to need some more help (particularly in the scheduling and result
uploading departments) from here on out in order to move forward.
