Make hg.py:repository() take an **opts arg and pass it down to

Then in commands.py:push(), pass ssh=x to the function that creates
the 'other' object.

Hmmm, there won't be many of these repo options, so that's probably
uglier than it needs to be..

Or we can instead pass it through the ui object, which is probably a
slightly cleaner way of passing random options around. In this
approach, we'd do something like:

class ui:
  def __init__(...)
    self.overlay = {}

  def setconfig(self, section, key, val):
    self.overlay[(section, key)] = val

  def config(self, section, key, default):
    # is this in the overlay?
    if self.overlay.has_key((section, key)):
        return self.overlay[(section, key)]

And that would make for a generally useful mechanism all over.

For a first attempt, it was pretty good. You didn't even use

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
