If all refs are packed, will it still burn lots of CPU on server side?

It'll be a new protocol, not an extension for git protocol. Ref
advertising is step 1. Capababilities are advertised much later. The
client has to time to tell the server what protocol version it likes
to use for step 1. (I looked at this protcol extension from a
different angle. I wanted to compress the ref list for git protocol.
But git over http compresses well so I don't care much.)

On that git-over-http, I don't know, maybe git client can send
something as http headers, which are recognized by the server end, to
negotiate interested ref patterns?
