$ hg clone old- hello
requesting all changes
adding changesets
adding manifests
adding file changes
added 1 changesets with 1 changes to 1 files

The first Mercurial versions suggested that there is a symlink from
the web server directory to the .hg directory, so only the
repository files were exported and not the working directory files.

When I'll do the automatic fall back from http I'll change that so
both will work.
