commands: disallow 'hg debugobsolete --index --rev <smth>'

A bug in the original --index implementation. The goal of --index is to allow
unique obsmarker identification that would be consistent between invocations
of this command in the unchanged repo. Further goal is to use this index to
delete arbitrary obsmarkers. So calling --index together with --rev would
cause obsmarker indices to be different than just calling --index. This is
not desired and current pattern for getting the index of an interesting
obsmarker is: `$ hg debugobsolete --index | grep <interesting hash>`.
It would clearly be better if we could somehow compute a hash of an obsmarker
and use it to identify the one we want to delete, but it seems a bit too
heavy for our current goals, so we can do this later if we want.
