New issue 2567 by Reviewboard replaces https with http when getting files from hg repo

What version are you running?

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
Issue is actually with posting a review

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Set up a mercurial repository through httpd, allowing only https traffic (no http at all)
2. Add that repository to reviewboard, with the correct https url.
3. Attempt to add a diff, (in my case using hg postreview), and notice that the reviewboard logs are attempting to fetch the file using http, not https, and receiving a 404. 4. Finally, notice that your attempt to post a diff failed, and provided a deceptive error message.

** bonus points: this behavior appears to be intentional, as seen in reviewboard/scmtools/ - where there is a line of code that explicitly replaces https with http. I'm not sure about the rational that wanted that behavior, but if someone still requires it, then an option toggling that behavior should be added.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Reviewboard should not change https to http, it should use what was specified by the user.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
reviewboard is running on Fedora 10, python 2.5, and I'm running OS X 10.7, using firefox 11.

Please provide any additional information below.
I commented out that line in get_file_http so that we can keep running. I would hope for a better solution however.
