Context cannot be set to 0 #12

When ack gets the option --context, it correctly identifies that no argument was given, and defaults to 2. However, when it gets the option --context=0, it cannot see that it was not given, because Perl considers the value 0 to be falseish.

The same problem occurs in full-ack.el. I've fixed it in my local copy, but I'm useless at git, so I have my .emacs checked into svn. Hopefully this diff is helpful, nonetheless:
