I vaguely recall raising a related topic for "quick repack, assuming
everything in existing packfiles are reachable, that only removes
loose cruft" several weeks ago.  Once you decide that your quick
repack do not care about ejecting objects from existing packs, like
how I suspect Martin's outline will lead us to, we can repack the
reachable loose ones on the recent surface of the history and then
concatenate the contents of existing packs, excluding duplicates and
possibly adjusting the delta base offsets for some entries, without
traversing the bulk of the history.
