rhg: add support for narrow clones and sparse checkouts

This adds a minimal support that can be implemented without parsing the narrowspec.
We can parse the narrowspec and add support for more operations later.

The reason we need so few code changes is as follows:

Most operations need no special treatment of sparse because
some of them only read dirstate (`rhg files` without `-r`),
which bakes in the filtering,
some of them only read store (`rhg files -r`, `rhg cat`),
and some of them read no data at all (`rhg root`, `rhg debugrequirements`).

`status` is the command that might care about sparse, so we just disable
rhg on it.

For narrow clones, `rhg files` clearly needs the narrowspec to work
correctly, so we fall back.
`rhg cat` seems to work consistently with `hg cat` if the file exists.
If the file is hidden by narrow spec, the error message is different and confusing, so
that's something that we should improve in follow-up patches.
