In fact, there is. I just finished running 'git repack -a -d' over the
'tmp' repo and here are the results:

In the first case, the network transmission took ~54s, so prep work on
server took ~1m45s. In the second case, network transmission took 48s,
so prep work took just ~28s. Therefore I think it makes sense to run the
command. If nobody objects I can do that later today.
