I agreed for a second, then remembered that we don't know the final
pack size until we finish writing it.. Not sure if we could estimate
(cheaply) with a good accuracy though.

If an object is reused, we already know its compressed size. If it's
not reused and is a loose object, we could use on-disk size. It's a
lot harder to estimate an not-reused, deltified object. All we have is
the uncompressed size, and the size of each delta in the delta chain..
Neither gives a good hint of what the compressed size would be.
