One projects has nearly 400 repositories. This is the project with the highest
repository count. But other projects have a lot of repositories too. So '**' is
the easiest way to configure this. Especially because the project maintainers
can create new repositories but can't edit the hgweb configuration (because
they can't restart the WSGI workers).

Thanks for your advice anyway!
