Overall, this fetch/clone approach seems reasonable to me, except
perhaps some unanswered questions (some of which are also being
discussed elsewhere):
 - does the server need to tell us of missing blobs?

File sizes are a nice addition.  For example, with a virtual
file system, a "ls -l" can lie and tell you the sizes of the
yet-to-be-populated files.

Nevermind the "ls -l" case, I forgot about the need for the
client to display the size of the (possibly) smudged file,
rather than the actual blob size.
