To add a little more detail ...

The version of Mercurial on is old, and it doesn’t
support the clonebundles extension, so we’d have to upgrade that.  We’d
have to revise the code that manages the repos to take clonebundles into
account when configuring a repository.  Finally, we’d have to figure out
where to stash the bundles; Oracle has a CDN that we could probably use
(the same one that hosts downloads for, but dealing with
it is, sadly, pretty awkward.

My take: It’s not worth distracting the work on Skara for this.
