I believe that just an upgarde will be sufficient to use the packing
complete shards, however the rep-sharing feature will only work on new
items commited. If you want to get rep-sharing working over all
existing data then dump and reload. We did if that helps :)

Actually what we did was restore a recent backup to a test system,
then tested a dump-reload upgrade to see what effect it would have.
The rep-sharing gave us a significant enough saving on disk to warrent
the downtime on the main repository so we went for it.
