This also makes sense to me, as far as it goes. I have a few comments
and questions:

Why do you call the new member `main_ref_store`? Is there expected to be
some other `ref_store` associated with a repository?

I think the origin of the name `main_ref_store` was to distinguish it
from submodule ref stores. But presumably those will soon become the
"main" ref stores for their respective submodule repository objects,
right? So maybe calling things `repository.ref_store` and
`get_ref_store(repository)` would be appropriate.

There are some places in the reference code that only work with the main
repository. The ones that I can think of are:

* `ref_resolves_to_object()` depends on an object store.

* `peel_object()` and `ref_iterator_peel()` also have to look up objects
(in this case, tag objects).

* Anything that calls `files_assert_main_repository()` or depends on
`REF_STORE_MAIN` isn't implemented for other reference stores (usually,
I think, these are functions that depend on the object store).

Some of these things might be easy to generalize to non-main
repositories, but I didn't bother because AFAIK currently only the main
repository store is ever mutated.

You can move a now-obsolete comment above the definition of `struct
files_ref_store` if you haven't in some other patch (search for
"libification").

Hope that helps,
Michael
