Looks good to me.
BTW, the code does git-blame to Vicent's 2834bc2 (which I also worked
on), but actually originated in 7a979d9 (Thin pack - create packfile
with missing delta base., 2006-02-19). Not that it matters, but I was
just surprised since the code you are changing did not seem familiar to
me. I guess there was just too much refactoring during the code movement
for git-blame to pass along the blame in this case.
