I was thinking about implementing git-show-refs, "borrowing" format
parsing part from rpm (parseFormat function in rpmdb/header.c), but
what I had not found in core git was the function which parses object
into any_object like union; there is function which parses object,
but it extracts and returns only the common part as an object struct. 
And any_object union is local to object.c

I also thought that if format doesn't require object parsing (sha1id,
type, name and size we can get without parsing) then do not do parsing,
but I wonder if this is really worth it.
