I mentioned this in an email to the original poster in which I forgot
to also CC the mailing list:
By "without any objects" in your email subject, do you mean "without
blob and tree objects"? If yes, there is some code in the
md/filter-trees branch that can do that with a "--filter=tree:0"
option. As far as I know, it is not yet in any released version of
Git, but hopefully will be in the next one (the "What's Cooking" 
email mentions that it will be merged to the "next" branch, which is
one of the steps before it is released).
