I don't think that's a good idea, at least until Norbert

good feel for when "multiple heads" happens. Maybe Norbert just needs
to update first.
In this case, since he's committed already, updating to the other head
will do the Wrong Thing. So he should just merge and then push.
But in the future, I think that (a) for Norbert "hg pull -u" should
DTRT, and (b) if multiple heads happen anyway and it's not obvious why
(ie, another package maintainer committed a new patch before Norbert
could respond to the first one, in which case pull and merge == hg
fetch *is* the right thing), we need to figure out why.
