* Packed object index header
* struct pack_idx_header {

* Note: this header isn't active yet. In future versions of git
* we may change the index file format. At that time we would start
* the first four bytes of the new index format with this signature,
* as all older git binaries would find this value illegal and abort
* reading the file.
* This is the case because the number of objects in a packfile
* cannot exceed 1,431,660,000 as every object would need at least
* 3 bytes of data and the overall packfile cannot exceed 4 GiB due
* to the 32 bit offsets used by the index. Clearly the signature
* exceeds this maximum.
* Very old git binaries will also compare the first 4 bytes to the
* next 4 bytes in the index and abort with a "non-monotonic index"
* error if the second 4 byte word is smaller than the first 4
* byte word. This would be true in the proposed future index
* format as idx_signature would be greater than idx_version.
