Interesting! Do you have some performance numbers to include with
this statement?

This part is not handled inside of `pack-objects`. Since you are not
sending '--no-sparse' when the variable 'sparse' is zero, the config
setting will automatically be picked up by the pack-objects builtin.

Now, a question of whether you _should_ allow the '--no-sparse' option
in the 'repack' command, and send it along to the inner command (when
it is present) is another question.

How about a test with this new option? You can probably just add to
t5322-pack-objects-sparse.sh.
