Yes I want normal flymake, then for code coverage I (think I) want to
turn on coverage-mode which will analyze the coverage data and if the
data is fresher than the file, show the coverage data as well.  Then
when one starts typing some new code (or a new line at least), disable
coverage data because it's stale.  This might seem weird but the
workflow I'm trying to get is working on a particular function,
analyze the coverage for it, and add tests to get full coverage.  My
helper utility provides me the ability to only run tests for that
function rather than a whole suite, so I imagine I'd want a macro to
run coverage-for-function.

yes, they are ;)
