I wonder if a simpler approach may be nearly efficient as this one:
keep the largest pack out, repack the rest at fetch/push time so there
are at most 2 packs at a time. Or we we could do the repack at 'gc
--auto' time, but with lower pack threshold (about 10 or so). When the
second pack is as big as, say half the size of the first, merge them
into one at "gc --auto" time. This can be easily implemented in
