If you can ssh from 'localhost to gateway' and then from 'gateway to
remotemachine' - then you can setup a ssh over ssh tunnel and use as:

ssh -L10212:remotemachine:22 gateway [-N]

hg clone -e 'ssh -p 10212' ssh://localhost//path/to/folder

Note: 10212 is an arbitary local port I choose - but it can be any [unused] value.
