I think one thing git's objects database is not very well suited for are

I'm hoping my 'chunking' patches will fix this. This ought to reduce the size of the object store by (in effect) doing delta compression; rsync
will then Do The Right Thing and only transfer the needed deltas.
Running some benchmarks right now to see how well it lives up to this promise...
