+	These two options affects how the objects contained in the pack are
+	stored using delta compression. The objects are first internally
+	sorted by type, size and optionally names and compared against the
+	other objects within `--window` to see if using delta compression saves
+	space. `--depth` limits the maximum delta depth; making it too deep
+	affects the performance on the unpacker side, because delta data needs
+	to be applied that many times to get to the necessary object.
