branch_util: lower the gerrit_write_qps limit even more

People keep getting throttling errors from Gerrit, even though the API
is supposed to allow 5 QPS for write access. This will make the tool
twice as slow, which is really annoying, but at least it'll stop failing
on people (I've never seen an error with a value of 1.0 here).

It would be better to put retries around the Gerrit API calls and
introduce backoffs after failures, but I don't have time to do that at
the moment.
