Yes. The on-the-wire format is a packfile. We create a new packfile on
the fly, so we may find new deltas (e.g., between objects that were
stored on disk in two different packs), but we will mostly be reusing
deltas from the existing packs.

So any time you improve the on-disk representation, you are also
improving the network bandwidth utilization.
