Pack v4 is supposed to tackle this delta chain thing, but its future
is a bit uncertain (you can give a hand btw). If you often do "git
blame", you might consider unpack most accessed objects (make it part
of "blame" process), which would function exactly like a cache with no
extra code. The downside is git-gc --auto is more likely to kick in
because of too many loose objects and pack everything up again.
