Not an official plumbing, but I faced similar problems with pack v4. I
needed to verify that the output is correct and low level decoding
like this is generally a good thing to start with. So I wrote
test-dump [1] that can take an offset, a format and try to decode it.
It does not support zlib inflation yet, but adding one should be easy.
And because this is just a test program we don't really need to think
hard before adding something.
