Yes it is. However it is most likely to have the feature incorporated if
it comes in form of a patch.

So clone one of the git.git repositories found at
https://git-blame.blogspot.com/p/git-public-repositories.html
and have a look builtin/fsck.c (Search for "Checking connectivity")
as well as how the progress.{h, c} for its API if needed.

I am not sure if this is an easy thing to add, as knowing the number
of objects before the walk might be hard. How does "Checking objects"
solve that issue?

See Documentation/SubmittingPatches once you have some code
that can be a starter of a discussion. :)

Thanks,
