Using fast-import is interesting. Does it update the working tree? The
big thing I wanted to avoid was creating a working tree (another million
inodes being created is not ever what I need)

Also interesting is the mention of creating packs on the fly... this
could save the time in first writing the object and then packing it (as
my script does).

I'm going to play with this....
