Ah, yeah, I forgot about that one. That implies that you have a lot of
refs pointing to the same objects (since the benefit of that commit is
to avoid reading from disk when we have already seen it).
Out of curiosity, what does your repo contain? I saw a lot of speedup
with that commit because my repos are big object stores, where we have
the same duplicated tag refs for every fork of the repo.
