I don't think there is an automated way to do that. If we have control
over the client side (say "emerge --sync" can be modified to do some
post processing), then we can regraft there and repack to shrink. For
linear history without tags, it should be safe.
Or you can bring this to git mailing list as a feature of "git gc".
