I dealt with this by creating partial index, that only contains
entries for interested subtrees. The index also stores the base tree
SHA-1, so write-tree can still create (full) new trees correctly from
partial index.

Is there a particular bit of code I'd be worth studying for the partial index example to see how well it might fit my ideas?
