I'm not sure how slow `git gc --auto` is with a totally unpacked
repository, but it guess it will be slow enough that some people might
not want to do the gc initially.

Not many people have complained about the size of the repoitory after
cloning, so I think it should be OK to let users call `git gc` when they
wish to.
