Update to fabric 0.9.1

Changes in version 0.9.1

The following changes were implemented in Fabric 0.9.1:

Feature additions

:issue:`82`: `~fabric.contrib.files.append` now offers a `partial` kwarg
allowing control over whether the "don't append if given text already exists"
test looks for exact matches or not. Thanks to Jonas Nockert for the catch
and discussion.
:issue:`112`: `fab --list` now prints out the fabfile's module-level
docstring as a header, if there is one.
:issue:`141`: Added some more CLI args/env vars to allow user configuration
of the Paramiko `connect` call -- specifically :ref:`no_agent` and


:issue:`75`: `fab`, when called with no arguments or (useful) options, now
prints help, even when no fabfile can be found. Previously, calling `fab`
in a location with no fabfile would complain about the lack of fabfile
instead of displaying help.
:issue:`130`: Context managers now correctly clean up `env` if they
encounter an exception. Thanks to Carl Meyer for catch + patch.
:issue:`132`: `~fabric.operations.local` now calls `strip` on its stdout,
matching the behavior of ``/`~fabric.operations.sudo`.
Thanks to Carl Meyer again on this one.
:issue:`166`: `` now correctly overwrites
`env.cwd` when given an absolute path, instead of naively appending its
argument to `env.cwd`'s previous value.

Documentation updates

A number of small to medium documentation tweaks were made which had no
specific Redmine ticket. The largest of these is the addition of :doc:`the
FAQ <../faq>` to the Sphinx documentation instead of storing it as a
source-only text file. (Said FAQ was also slightly expanded with new FAQs.)
:issue:`17`: Added :ref:`note to FAQ <faq-daemonize>` re: use of `dtach` as
alternative to `screen`. Thanks to Erich Heine for the tip.
:issue:`64`: Updated :ref:`installation docs <downloads>` to clarify where
package maintainers should be downloading tarballs from. Thanks to James
Pearson for providing the necessary perspective.
:issue:`95`: Added a link to a given version's changelog on the PyPI page
(technically, to the `` `long_description` field).
:issue:`110`: Alphabetized :ref:`the CLI argument command reference
<command-line-options>`. Thanks to Erich Heine.
:issue:`120`: Tweaked documentation, help strings to make it more obvious
that fabfiles are simply Python modules.
:issue:`127`: Added :ref:`note to install docs <pypm>` re: ActiveState's
PyPM. Thanks to Sridhar Ratnakumar for the tip.
