I am still not very happy with fetch_object() not returning anything.
I wonder what happens when that function is used to fetch from a repo
that cannot provide the requested object.

Also I think the "extensions.partialclone = <remote>" config option is
not very future proof. If people start using partial clone, it is
likely that at some point they will need their repo to talk to more
than one remote that is partial clone enabled and I don't see how such
a config option can scale in this case.

Thanks for already having commented on the patch series I sent to
integrate the external odb with the above work,
