--depth=250 means to allow chains of "To get this object, first
inflate this object, then apply this delta" of length 250.

That's absurdly long, and doesn't even help compression much in
practice (many short chains referring to the same objects tends to
work fine).  We probably shouldn't make --aggressive do that.
Something like --depth=10 would make more sense.

Hoping that clarifies,
