    As the documentation says, this is primarily for debugging, and
    in the longer term we should rename it to test-show-index or something.
    
    In the meantime, just avoid xmalloc (which slurps in the rest of git), and
    separating out the trivial hex functions into "hex.o".
    
    This results in
    
      [torvalds@nehalem git]$ size git-show-index
           text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
         222818    2276  112688  337782   52776 git-show-index (before)
           5696     624    1264    7584    1da0 git-show-index (after)
    
    which is a whole lot better.
