In order to read an object data, the low level core GIT layer
does open()/mmap() of a file on the locally mounted filesystem.
It also does opendir()/readdir()/closedir() to find what's

If you can arrange to automount via luserfs (or whatever; we do
not care much about particular implementation) so that it can do
these filesystem operations, git will happily use it.

Even in that case, the alternate you would tell git should look
like a local filesystem path --- your automounting from remote
specified with URL for such a path would happen outside GIT.
