One of the things I was trying to do with this series was to make sure
that whenever we run "git gc" there's always some indication that if you
set gc.writeCommitGraph=true that it's actualy doing work.

This modifies that, which I think is actually fine, just something I
wanted to note. I.e. if you run "git commit-graph write" twice in a row,
the second time will have no output.

Unless that is, your repo is big enough that some of the delayed timers
kick in. So e.g. on git.git we get no output the second time around, but
do get output the first time around, and on linux.git we always get
output.

But in the common case people aren't running this in a loop, and it's
useful to see how many new things are being added to the graph, so I
think this is better. Just wanted to note the behavior difference (and
will change the commit message).
