So this can't be done from the command line with a series of commands then...?

Ok so basically apart from Martin's method, there is no way to do this without really wading into
the code and changing things / making an extension.

That is problematic that we can't easily test a username + password combination on a server...

Since Martin's method works and I don't have to go studying code and try to make an extension
with it, since what version of Mercurial would the server support:
   hg debugpushkey --noninteractive\
    namespaces key old new
