Basically Mira is just watching the repository. If a test run finishes, 
it looks at the repository, takes the "tip" and tests it (if it was not 
already tested). In particular, this means that later pushes can take 
the focus away from your pushes.

It might be a good idea to implement a strategy which tests the existing 
heads in reverse chronological order (commits pushed last get tested 
first), but I am not sure whether this information is available in 
Mercurial (we have the commit date, but this is not necessarily related 
to the push-date).
