So we haven't found any way to present both branches "foo" and
"foo/bar" on file system at the same time. How about when we a new
branch introduces such a conflict, we push the new branch directly to
packed-refs? If we need either of them on a separate file, for fast
update for example, then we unpack just one and repack all refs that
conflict with it. Attempting to update two conflict branches in
parallel may impact performance, but I don't think that happens often.
