'pass' causes pragma no cover to be ignored

Issue #576 closed

If a branch only contains pass it is required to be covered even if the branch is #pragma: no cover.

For example, in the following

foo = True

if foo == True:
    foo = False
else:  # pragma: no cover
    pass

if foo == False:
    foo = True
else:  # pragma: no cover
    None

Only the first else requires coverage; using None instead of pass rectifies the problem.
