Will upgrade from 1.6 to 1.7 benifit from dump/reload?

Hi devs,

A small question in anticipation of 1.7: will an (FSFS) repo benifit
from a dump/reload when upgrading from 1.6 to 1.7? Or will a simple
"upgrade" (followed maybe by a "pack" to pack the revprops) provide
just the same?

Reason for asking: We're currently still running on 1.5, and planning
to upgrade to 1.6 soon. Tests have shown us that doing a dump/reload
during this upgrade will give some benefit (due to rep-sharing
probably), but nothing huge. So I'm just wondering whether to do a
dump/reload now (to be in the best possible shape for the future), or
that I'll have to do another dump/reload when going to 1.7 in order to
get maximum benifits. In the latter case, I will probably not do a
dump/reload now (just upgrade to 1.6), and defer that until we upgrade
to 1.7...

Kind regards,
Johan
