OK - in that case, it might be easier to just reuse my first patch in
its entirety. "core.partialclonefilter" is not used until the
fetching/cloning part anyway.

I agree that "core.partialclonefilter" (or another place not in
"remote") instead of "remote.<name>.blob-max-bytes" is a good idea - in
the future, we might want to reuse the same filter setting for
non-fetching functionality.
