That is true.  My experience from the one I have been cooking,
Gitified 2.4.0->2.6.12-rc2 BKCVS export results in a bit shy of
600KB commit ancestry information.  The full development trail
for that repository contains 370152 objects among which 28237
are commits; when packed into one pack-idx pair, it is around
a 170MB .pack with a 9MB .idx file.

Nothing, and you convinced me to drop the one I have been
cooking.  Maybe its time to either change git-fetch-script to
use wget -r for http transport for objects part, perhaps?
