Just so we're clear as I'm involved a bit in packv4 series. I plan to
make the test suite fully pass, then add v4 support to git protocol.
After that I may look into adding multi-base tree support to
index-pack/unpack-objects, and only then either look into this
challenge or continue to add v4-aware tree walker to git. In short,
you you are intereted in Nico's challenge, go ahead, it will not
overlap with my work, at least in the next one or two months.
