I disagree. Larger projects have multiple HEADs (stable, oldstable,
development, ...). I don't like putting those in different repositories,
you end up with a heap of housekeeping effort to hardlink duplicate
objects, all of which is going to be wasted when different people run
"git repack".

Not everybody has 100-GB disks and multi-MB Internet pipes to play with...
