For the 'filtering out paths' cases on FSFS it would seem that only
changed the revisions + book-keeping need to be written into the
temporary 'repository' and then moved into the old repository.

For any revision N containing an obliterated path (or a reference to
one) a revision N' is created which has the obliterated path removed.
If the revision contained a reference to an obliterated path then that
too requires the creation of N' - EG replacing an copy-with-history
with a full-text entry.

Since I don't know the internal format of the revisions, are there
other details that need to be altered in untouched (by the definition
above at least) revisions.
