I'm not sure that's a great test of sha1 performance. It will hash the
commit and tree objects it loads during the traversal, but that time is
almost certainly dwarfed by zlib inflation and by lookup_object.

Adding "--verify-objects" would sha1 the blobs, too, which might be more
reasonable (or running "git fsck"). Something like "git add" on a large
blob would also be a good test.
