Pullbundles are similar to clonebundles, but served as normal inline
bundle streams. They are almost transparent to the client -- the only
visible effect is that the client might get less changes than what it
asked for, i.e. not all requested head revisions are provided.
The client announces support for the necessary retries with the
partial-pull capability. After receiving a partial bundle, it updates
the set of revisions shared with the server and drops all now-known
heads from the request list. It will then rerun getbundle until
no changes are received or all remote heads are present.
