It's pretty rad to see this advancing to master.
FYI: I started working on teaching the object store how to work
with repository objects. This would allow us to get rid of hacks in
submodule.c: namely add_submodule_odb, which adds submodule
objects to the (main) object store for processing. Ideally we want
to free the objects of a submodule once we are done with a submodule.
(or integrate it into our try_to_free_routine)

Speaking of submodules, It's not just features, but I also send bug fixes. ;)
(That patch is not related to this series, except for working in the submodule
area, but I consider that patch more important than e.g. this series.)

There was some review on the list (mostly from Brandon and Jonathan T.),
but I felt like it was bikeshedding, as there is no black/white correctness
with words. (Same for code, but for code it is easier to come to a
consensus at least.)

So I had a couple of internal rounds with them on a Google doc, hence
I assume they agree on this patch being ok as-is.  But it has been a while
I can reread it myself to check. But I guess most valuable input
would come from others.

cool. Let's see how a larger audience reacts to this one. Maybe there
is more input for a good heuristic.
