I'm not saying nothing should be done, but I'm not sure packed-refs are
the right solution in the long term. We already have the foo Vs foo/bar
issue (discussed in the "keeping reflog for deleted refs" discussion). I
think the right way would be to re-think the way we map ref name to the
filesystem, with proper escaping of capitals, slashes, ...

But that's a rather big change to do (and I'm unlikely to be the one
volunteering for it :-( )
