For "repack -ad", generally we don't spend that much time on deltas. It
depends what your pre-repack state is, of course, but I find that most
of the time goes to "counting objects". With "-adf", I would guess that
we easily spend something like 95% of the time on compressing for a
large repository (just try "repack -adf" on the kernel; even with 8
cores it's a half hour or more on my machine, versus about 25 seconds to
count the objects).
So I think you could potentially get a lot of speedup for the "-adf"
case (and likewise "git gc --aggressive").
