Huge number of rev files in in svn repository

I've been doing some experiments with importing the Mozilla CVS
repository in to svn and git. I am having terrible performance
problems with this process. Many of the tasks take days to complete.

After importing Mozilla in to svn using cvs2svn, a big problem is that
my svn repository has 450,000 files in it. Two directories have
220,000 files each in them. ext3 collapses under that size of
directory since it does sequential looks ups for file names.

It there some way to pack the repository down to fewer files?

svn could be changed to get around this problem. The files are
sequentially numbered from 1 to 220,000. It would be easy to put the
first 1000 in one directory and so on to spread the files over 220
directories. git uses this technique.
