OK, I've made a patch which fulfills this requirement pretty well.
Hopefully you'll find it reasonably clean and unintrusive:
With this patch, if you have .mrconfig files defining repositories:
then you can limit mr to only act on those via:
mr -r foo,bar $action
If there is a clash of directory names, then it can be resolved via a
new special parameter 'name':
checkout = git clone ...
name = foo.git
checkout = cvs checkout ...
name = foo.cvs
and then you can do:
mr -r foo.cvs update
