I started on this, and it turned out not to really be any simpler. In
particular there is the question of whether
git cat-file --batch-cols=size,type
is different from
git cat-file --batch-cols=type,size
If so, then you are basically implementing the equivalent of a macro
format anyway (you have to parse it left to right to know the order).
And if not, you end up translating the column list into a bit-field, and
the boilerplate for adding a new item is about the same as for a macro
So I went ahead with the full formats for my re-roll. It turned out
pretty reasonable, I think.
