(This bug is similar to #3012 but have different use-case and context)

As I found out from bug #3012, when converting from hg to hg, convert updates
shamap of both source and destination repositories.

I want to have the following workflow which this behaviour breaks:
1. Convert multiple SVN branches to different Mercurial repos
2. Prepare splicemaps to reflect SVN merges
3. Convert separate branch repos into one repository
4. Repeat (incrementally) step 1 again.

Now, repeating step 1 won't work because effectively step 3 broke shamap files.

My suggesting in resolving this:
1. Add additional convert.hg.twoway (set to 1 by default) to allow disabling
updates of source repo
2. Document at
that convert updates both repositories for round-tripping conversions support.
