Excluding hosts is broken #373

While the tests for this newly added feature still pass, the feature itself is broken in real usage:

  • fab -x doesn't work with -H-specified hosts (also when @hosts is used)
  • fab -x doesn't work with -R specified roles (also when @roles is used)
  • fab task:exclude_hosts=x doesn't work with -H-specified hosts (when @roles is used, but also when it is not used)

The rest may be busted too, not sure. Haven't actually looked at the cause, hopefully something simple was busted pre-1.1 release.
