JGit code... is confusing because its fast. We spent a lot of time
trying to make things fast on the JVM, and somewhat comparable with C
Git even though its not in C. Some of the low-level APIs are fast
because they bypass conventional Java wisdom and just tell the #@!*
machine what to do, with no pretty bits about it. Make it pretty, it
goes slower. Or uses more RAM. Java likes RAM.

Good luck making an improved library. JGit of course is also
interested in contributions. The api package has been trying to make a
simpler calling convention for common use cases that match the command
line interface user are familiar with, but its still incomplete and
hides some optimizations that are possible with the lower-level calls.
