Thanks. As I recall, these were in pretty good shape, and I just read
over them again and didn't see anything wrong.

All sensible, I think.

Yeah, it should be easy to just hashcmp the sha1s after calling
import_object. In fact, I think we can just erase any existing replace
ref in that case (the user might have started with a replace ref and
converted it _back_ to the original object, for example).
