It was temporarily thrashing for a while when there were several pulls
going on at the same time (each instance of the hgwebdir script needs
a few tens of megs). I am hosting someone's website on this machine
that uses a bunch of RoR processes -> a lot of RAM -> swapping is
easily triggered. That's temporary though. It should still be fully
usable; pretty much only the initial checkout should take significant
amount of time.

I could switch to plain HTTP which is supported by hg, but then it
won't be as efficient in terms of bandwidth and performance for
individual clients.

Please note that hg doesn't print much of a progress indicator, so it
may look stalled even if it isn't.
