I've been testing this with the old CollabNet Subversion repository, the
first 40,515 Subversion revisions, on my Linux laptop:

The db/revs directory (unpacked) is 320MB instead of 490MB.
Loading takes about 12% more CPU.
Dumping takes about 22% more CPU.

which matches your results.  Packing removes about 85MB for both

There are operations where reading the directory representations is more
dominant.  'svn log' on a path inside the repository uses 100% more CPU.
