clone-pack: new option --keep tells it not to explode the pack.
With new option --keep, or a configuration item clone.keeppack (we need a better name, or start allowing dash,"clone.keep-pack"), the packed data downloaded while cloning is saved as a pack in .git/objects/pack/ locally, with index generated for it with git-index-pack.
