example usage:
python client.py --repo=/c/p/nss/nss update_nss NSS_3_15_4_RTM

This greatly speeds up the process of importing NSPR and/or NSS into mozilla repos if you already have a local copy of the necessary NSS revision, which is almost always the case for NSS peers.

Also, generally, we have to test our patches to NSS locally in Firefox before we submit them for review to be included in NSS. This makes that process more efficient. Without this, we end up having to do weird dances with "cd security/nss && patch -p1 < $LOCAL_NSS/.hg/patches/patch-name" and whatnot.
