While I agree that giving more flexibility to repack objects is
a good idea, I am not sure rolling all existing objects into one
pack and removing the existing one is a good way to go.

I'd do this slightly differently.  I do not think removing
existing pack belongs to this command.  We would probably want a
separate tool to find extra/redundant packs and remove them, or
more generally optimize packs by selectively exploding them and
repacking them ("pack optimizer").
