copy folders instead of sequential hg clones

You might wish instead to do local clones of the first repo.
hg clone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk9/dev first
sh get_source.sh (with possibly some "magic" url)
hg clone first second
sh get_source.sh ../first
If you need to move repos between local machines or VMs you can also use, for jdk9 repos,
sh common/bin/hgforest.sh serve
and then use
hg clone http://myhost.com:8000/repo repo
sh get_source.sh http://myhost.com:8000/
where "myhost.com" and "repo" are replaced with the names shown in the status output from the serve command.
There is nothing encoded in the repo which should cause problems due to copying but a local clone *should* be faster and use less disk space.
