Not that I'm aware of.

When we give ct_run a cover spec, it uses excl_mods as an argument in
the test_server_ctrl:cover_compile() call.

When using eunit, rebar_eunit calls cover:compile_beam/1, so we could
exclude modules there and skip analyzing them later as well.

That said, I'm not sure if it's a good idea to add something like
{eunit_cover_exclude_mods, []} to rebar.config.

Maybe we can change eunit to support a spec file too.

Fred, any opinion?
