Switching between multiple mercurial repositories quickly

I'm working with multiple hg repositories I've setup on BitBucket. I know you can go into the hgrc file to modify the remote URL path to change between repositories (I work on the terminal), but it seems pretty inefficient to have to edit that file each time I want to push changes to a different repository. Is there another way to quickly specify which repository I want to push or pull changes to/from (other than writing a script to modify the hgrc file)? Thanks in advance.

You can enter the URL to the repo you want to push to on the command line.  You can even give multiple repos aliases in the .hgrc file.  See the Mercurial documentation for the push/pull commands. (hg help push)

Awesome. Missed that somehow. Thanks!
