    cat-file: provide %(deltabase) batch format · 65ea9c3c

    It can be useful for debugging or analysis to see which
    objects are stored as delta bases on top of others. This
    information is available by running `git verify-pack`, but
    that is extremely expensive (and is harder than necessary to
    parse).
    
    Instead, let's make it available as a cat-file query format,
    which makes it fast and simple to get the bases for a subset
    of the objects.
