Sorry I was neither talking about "cat-file ..." nor about the 20 byte
conversion. I was talking about the bk export script, which writes the
objects itself. Doing this with the git-tools would slow it down, as I
have the retrieved data already in memory. It does not slow me down to
create the binary ref, but its annoying.
I just figured, that some revtools might have the need to use direct
pointers into objects and face the same problem the other way round.
