Yes, stream priorities is another option, but it's not reliable. We
still have to manage spillbuf as fallback etc.

I agree that current code could fail in some edge cases, like
re-authentication for some reason.

I think simple solution for all these kind of problems would be just
add new replay-range REPORT that will stream all revision range in one
REPORT. We already do this for blame in file-revs REPORT, so I don't
see problems here. For older servers we can just disable pipelining in
this case. What do you think?
