Our particular use case is that we have a top level module called
api. In our CI system (jenkins) there's a Cobertura plugin that displays these. However, the URL is
../cobertura/api/. Cobertura uses that internally for its API. Ironically, we can get test coverage for
api.tests since that gets expanded to
While technically this is a bug in Cobertura, we're unable to update it since we're on a very old jenkins. And, I think it might be useful for other situations where these collisions might appear.
