def _sudo(args):

This, in Fabric itself, works fine when invoked as sudo from the CLI.

However, when it's attempted to be Sphinx autodoc'd and used with, it gets skipped over because even though unwrap_tasks adds it to the module as member name sudo:

  • the real sudo function that the task is shadowing, comes in later in the unwrap loop, and overwrites our task; and
  • even if it didn't, Sphinx autodoc apparently looks at .func_name and not the module member name to determine privacy -- so the docstring is hidden (without using :private-members:).
