Use case is passing a big chunk of options to some remote command, including GNU style --x=y.

This does not work because of Fab's naive CLI task arg/kwarg parsing, which picks it up as a kwarg.

Like #137 we should probably allow for backslash escaping of equals signs so users in this situation aren't left out to dry.
