Thanks.  It refers to an article at gmane, which is not readily
accessible unless you use newsreader.  The original discussion it
refers to appears at:

for those who are interested.

I am still not sure if it is a good design to add a new command like
this series does, though.  I would naively have expected that this
would be a new pack index format that is produced by pack-objects
and index-pack, for example, in which case its maintenance would
almost be invisible to end users (i.e. just like how the pack bitmap
feature was added to the system).
