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" [1]
email mentions that it will be merged to the "next" branch, which is
one of the steps before it is released).
