[issue2394] push takes minutes with remote shared directory

New submission from robert1234 <rv.trashbin at gmail.com>:

When I perform push against another repo on a remote file share (with 100ms
link latency and 256kbps bandwidth), it can take several minutes to sync the
repo. This happens even if there are only a few small changed files. SSH and
HHTPS are not an option in this case.

I think the lag is there because mercurial does a lot of ping-pong
communication over the 100ms link, probably doing a lot of locking, file
reading, file writing, etc. All through the poor slow link.

I would like to have an option added to push command that optimizes push for
link latency.
