OK slight change in the subject, what about reading code (i.e.
sha1_file.c)? With v2 crc32 is verified by object inflate code. With
v4 trees or commits, because we store some (or all) data outside of
the deflated stream, we will not benefit from crc32 verifcation
previously done for all trees and commits. Should we perform explict
crc32 check when reading v4 trees and commits (and maybe verify the
sha-1 table too)?
