Fabric's fabfile discovery algorithm only treats directories with an __init__.py file in them as legal Python packages. It refuse to load any directories with an __init__.pyc file only (without __init__.py) in them , which are also legal Python packages.

Fabfile discovery: loading package with *.pyc only
As the doc (sites/docs/usage/fabfiles.rst, in "Fabfile discovery")
says, Fabric is capable of loading Python modules (e.g. fabfile.py) or
packages (e.g. a fabfile/ directory containing an __init__.py).
Starting from version 0.9.2, Fabric has been capable of loading package
fabfiles.

However, Fabric's fabfile discovery algorithm only treats directories
with an __init__.py file in them as legal Python packages.  It refuse
to load any directories with an __init__.pyc file only (without
__init__.py) in them, which are also legal Python packages.

Fabric's current fabfile discovery algorithm works well for most cases.
But in some cases, for example, suppose someone would like to release a
tool, which consist of several Fabric tasks, in such a format that it
only contains *.pyc files, i.e. he/she does not want to release the
source code at all.  In such a case, users could run into trouble since
Fabric refuse to load packages which only have an __init__.pyc in them.

This commit gives Fabric the ability to load package fabfiles with
__init__.pyc file only.

This resolves fabric#1427.
