IMHO, everything after "not addressed by this patch" doesn't really add
anything. This commit has value on its own, and the discussion about the
next steps is already documented on the list (and hopefully will be
fixed with other patches!).

Is there any reason to use different filenames and sizes for the two
runs? They should behave identically, so it would make more sense to me
to subject them to identical inputs.

I know you need different files and filenames to continue pushing into
the same "dest", but the problem is easily solved by bumping the "git
init" into the loop.
