FSFS packing: experiences?

Has anyone here used the FSFS packing feature of 1.6?
http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.6_releasenotes.html#fsfs-packing

- What are the experiences with this?

- Any caveats, things to look out for?

- Does it improve performance of certain operations (that are heavy on server-IO)? I would hope it improves log and annotate performance (these need to crawl a lot of rev files on the server). Does it?

I'm also a little bit cautious because of the following sentence in the release notes:
"Once a repository has been packed, there is no migration path back to an unpacked state [...]."
Is there really no way to "unpack" (short of restoring backups)? No way to experiment with the feature then ... what if it goes wrong or performs worse?

Thanks for sharing.

Regards,
Johan
