Here's an alternative implementation. In FSFS, at commit time, new
node IDs are rewritten from a temporary value like "_ab3" to a unique
value by adding "ab3" to the "start_node_id" field in the current
file. This makes them not only unique, but also part of an ordered
sequence without gaps.

Is it actually important that node IDs be ordered and gapless? We
could just change new node-IDs (in format 3 repositories) to be built
as "<rev>-ab3". get-node-origin-rev would be trivial on these nodes.
Pre-format-3 repositories, or nodes in format 3 repositories that
aren't dumped and loaded, would require the slow crawl.
