Hi Stefan,

In this post-1.9.x-branch commit (and a couple of subsequent
pack-related commits) you changed the pack layout for FSFS format7, to
make it more efficient for exports, checkouts, ...

I'm wondering, when 1.10 comes out, how will I be able to benefit from
this improved pack layout? Supposing I've already dump/load-ed with
1.9 in FSFS7, and packed it.

Does this require a format bump (and another dump/load)? Or do you
plan on providing a way to "repack" (or simply unpack and pack) a
packed repository? Currently there is no unpack or repack command ...
