I think it would make the scheme I described faster, because that diff
becomes faster. So the commit traversal itself becomes proportionally
more expensive. And if we could speed that up with bitmaps, that's some
improvement. OTOH, my later timings in patch 9 showed that commit graphs
already make that part pretty fast. And they do so without a bunch of
weird restrictions and hassles. So I suspect it's not really worth the
effort to implement this half-way bitmaps approach (for a special case
that it's not even clear anybody cares about).

But if somebody _does_ do so, I don't think we'd need to do anything too
special to integrate with commit-graph-path-filter. The nice thing about
that approach is that the pathspec pruning will just magically return
the same answer, but faster.
