This program searches the $GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY for all objects that
currently exist in a pack file as well as the independent object
All such extra objects are removed.
A pack is a collection of objects, individually compressed, with
delta compression applied, stored in a single file, with an
associated index file.
Packs are used to reduce the load on mirror systems, backup engines,
disk storage, etc.
