Support #5787: FNAL CVMFS Stratum 1 support
Change pull_and_push.sh to use cvmfs_server snapshot
Rsync slows down too much when there's other disk activity such as the installation of a new repository replica. Change pull_and_push.sh to use cvmfs_server snapshot on backup reading from master, instead of using rsync. Also write a remove-repository, and change add-repository to also do the double-snapshot. Also reduce the default CVMFS_NUM_WORKERS for replication; 16 does an awful lot of disk activity.

- Status changed from New to Closed
This was finished last week. Did not end up reducing CVMFS_NUM_WORKERS, but did many measurements and found that the current machines are extremely slow at creating (and removing) many small files. Most likely it is because the filesystem is xfs.
