Yeah, I second that.  What I've done in the past when renaming repositories
is to do one last commit on the old repository that deletes everything except
for a README file telling people where to find the new repository.  The
history is still intact for those just dying to use the old mercurial repo,
but it is clear to most everyone else that this repository is dead.
