Maybe if it were available over http, it would work together with http
proxies (e.g. Squid) for companies to be able to cache the objects in

So if a company has several clones behind a proxy (or a hosting company
working with git clones for their customers), and all try to fetch
through the same proxy, only one would need to fetch from "remote" all
others fetch from the local proxy.

It could even be used to alleviate stress to the main git repository by
having reverse proxies before the real git server.

This assumes that all fetches go through "GET" requests and that it
provides cacheable data.
