My "Good thinking ;-)" comment was primarily meant as "somebody
needs to at least think about the possibility and consider pros and
cons", and you thought about it already ;-).

In short, kb's hash table does not cover the need for pack-bitmap,
so we should keep two at least for now, until (and/or unless) either
side can be shown (and/or extended) to cover the need for the other
one as well.
