py.test 2.1.3: just some fixes

pytest-2.1.3 is a minor backward compatible maintenance release of the
popular py.test testing tool.  It is commonly used for unit, functional-
and integration testing.  See extensive docs with examples here:


The release contains a fix to the perfected assertions introduced
with the 2.1 series as well as the new possibility to customize the
detailed reporting for assertion expressions on a per-directory level.

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

    pip install -U pytest # or
    easy_install -U pytest

Thanks to the bug reporters and to Ronny Pfannschmidt, Benjamin Peterson
and Floris Bruynooghe who implemented the fixes.
