Is the size of all directories a concern at all?
You clone it once and just leave it there and do normal git.
In other words, can you explain the problems you are trying to avoid?
I worked with big repos and cloning is slow, but then branching, commit and
push is fast, so maybe you are trying to do something different?
Hope this helps,
