Beware that the tree delta encoding has changed a little. This saved up
to 2% on some repos.
I'll probably change the encoding to incorporate the escape hatch
for path and name references as discussed previously.

Well, unfortunately I've put more time than I really had available into
this project lately. I'm about to call for other people to take over it
and pursue this work further.
I really wanted to set the pack format direction since I've been toying
with this for so many years. Now the tool to convert a pack is there,
and the read side is also there, proving that the format does work and
the encoding and decoding code is functional and may serve as reference.
So that's about the extent of what I can contribute at this point.
I'll be happy to provide design assistance and code review comments of
course. But I won't be able to put the time to do the actual coding
myself much longer.
