Doing it the way CGit does it from Java will be difficult, CGit uses filesystem hardlinks to efficiently copy object and pack files on the same filesystem. Java doesn't support these.It does in Java 7, on filesystems that support it: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/nio/file/Files.html#createLink(java.nio.file.Path,%20java.nio.file.Path)
Not saying that it should be abandoned but would moving to Java 7 in newer releases of jgit be problematic?
