This series lets you query the delta base for a particular object (or
set of objects), like:

  $ git rev-list --objects --all |
    git cat-file --batch-check='%(objectname) %(deltabase) %(rest)'

The only other way I know of to get this information is using
verify-pack (or index-pack), which is much slower (and less convenient
to parse).

I needed this recently to write tests for another (not yet published)
series. But I think it stands on its own as a debugging / introspection

  [1/2]: sha1_object_info_extended: provide delta base sha1s
  [2/2]: cat-file: provide %(deltabase) batch format
