Currently, the Cobertura data file (cobertura.ser) used by an instrumented program is specified in a Java system property, a properties file in a particular location or with the default value "cobertura.ser" in the current directory.

In order to increase flexibility and allow project test coverage to be measured in a non-intrusive way, without modifying an existing build and test system, it would be nice to also check the environment variable COBERTURA_DATAFILE before falling back to the default. A patch that implements this is attached.
