Hmph. It bisects to Junio's d1a0ed1 (index-pack: show histogram when
emulating "verify-pack -v", 2011-06-03), which introduces those lines.
The deepest_delta variable is static, so by definition it is always
initialized to something. So I guess some objects may not have
delta_depth set. Still looking.
