I chatted with @pyd on the Caltrain on Saturday about this before I sent 
the email. The possibility of "remotes" came up but the peer might be 
"local" as well (eg, another dir on your machine made me not fall in 
love with that name, but I'm not against it either). But since we're 
bikeshedding, let me throw out a few more  possibilities with commentary:

[peers]   # I really like this one, it's very mercurial-y, I just 
realized this might be a good name when writing my response above
[newpaths]  # Obviously related to paths
[paths2] # shorter, same as above
