py.test 2.0.3: bug fixes and speed ups

Welcome to pytest-2.0.3, a maintenance and bug fix release of pytest,
a mature testing tool for Python, supporting CPython 2.4-3.2, Jython
and latest PyPy interpreters.  See the extensive docs with tested examples here:

If you want to install or upgrade pytest, just type one of::

    pip install -U pytest # or
    easy_install -U pytest

There also is a bugfix release 1.6 of pytest-xdist, the plugin
that enables seemless distributed and "looponfail" testing for Python.
