[snip]

The margin for error in RCov is higher than 4%, so 96% threshold is  
probably just a little high.

In one of the projects at my last job, we had 100% of the lines  
covered, but RCov only reported 94%.  This is due to some bugs in  
RCov not counting trailing ends, empty newlines, etc.  It looks like  
the margin for error increases with the number of files.
