I'm not really familiar with the commands for for fetching and accessing
individual objects so I can't be specific.  I'm mostly just speculating.
:-)

But git cat-file seems like a good candidate once object have been fetched
to the local repository.  I'd suggest git fetch to actually transfer the
objects from the remote repository, but I can't tell from the man-page
whether it can be used for all types of objects or just refs...
