I'm not criticizing JGit, guys. It simply doesn't fit into our needs.
We're not interested in mapping git commands in java and don't have
the same RAM limitations.

I know JGit team is doing a great job and we do not intend to build a
library with such completeness.

Are you guys contributors of JGit? Can you guys point me out to the
code that unpacks git objects? The closest I could get was that class:

It seems to be a standard and a non standard format of the packed
object, as I read the comments of this method:

I suspect that the default inflater class of java api expect the
object to be in the standard format.

What the following comment mean? What's the "Experimental pack-based"
format? Is there any docs on the specs of that?

We must determine if the buffer contains the standard
zlib-deflated stream or the experimental format based
on the in-pack object format. Compare the header byte
for each format:
RFC1950 zlib w/ deflate : 0www1000 : 0 <= www <= 7
Experimental pack-based : Stttssss : ttt = 1,2,3,4
