I am not sure how you are envisioning to use "cat-file
--batch-check" here.  Do you mean to take "rev-list --all" output
from both and compare, or something?

I am not sure how Konstantin defines "the most efficient", but if it
is "with the smallest number of bits exchanged between the
repositories", then the answer would probably be to find the root
commit(s) in each repository and if they share any common root(s).
If there isn't then there is no hope to share objects between them,
of course.
