I think the answer is "no", based on both reasoning and testing (both of
which are included in patches 3-4 of the series below).
So here's my re-roll of the series.
[1/6]: test-sha1: add a binary output mode
New in this iteration; the previous version piped test-sha1 into
perl to create the pack trailer, but with this simple change we can
drop the perl dependency.
[2/6]: sha1-lookup: handle duplicate keys with GIT_USE_LOOKUP
Same code as before. I've factored the pack-creation bits from the
tests into lib-pack.sh, so they can be reused elsewhere when we want
to create bogus packs (and patches 3-4 reuse them here).
[3/6]: add tests for indexing packs with delta cycles
[4/6]: test index-pack on packs with recoverable delta cycles
New tests covering delta cycles.
[5/6]: index-pack: optionally reject packs with duplicate objects
Similar to before, but I converted the config flag to a simple
boolean (since we scrapped the "fix" of the tri-state "allow,
[6/6]: default pack.indexDuplicates to false
This flips the safety check on by default everywhere (before, it was
left off for index-pack).
