I'm not sure what "it" is here. My earlier message was admittedly
rambling, but I think I'm arguing that it's OK to continue to include
this patch that you already have, and punt further changes to make
"rev-list --objects" detect blob problems down the road. I.e., leave the
two expect_failures in place that your v1 series ends with.
