$ fab get_latest                 
False

True
$ fab get_latest:no_download=False     
True

Everything passed in to fabric is a string, so be aware that bool("0") == True and bool("False") == True.

Bools are a special case, make sure they default to false and you’ll get nice behavior. There seems to be no way to make bool args default to True, and then be overridden by False in code.
