This is really just an ssh question, but you might want to do something
like this in your .ssh/config:

Host protected
Hostname protected.foo.com
ProxyCommand ssh firewall.foo.com /usr/bin/nc protected.foo.com 22

When you run "ssh protected", ssh will first run the proxy command to
create a raw connection to protected machine, then negotiate ssh over
it. Then you can "ssh protected" in one step and ssh://protected will
work with hg.
