I don't think their technology would support that; as far as I know
they can't do anything with Perl or Python or the like.

What I find to be of more concern is what maintainers are expected to
do with that information.  In most cases all we'd be able to do is
pass the reports upstream, which I suppose would be OK but might be a
bit much to ask some maintainers (i.e. the ones with 50+ packages) to
handle.  Ideally Coverity would just deal directly with upstream and
extras wouldn't need to be involved.
