The ZEO server does all the packing work.  The zeopack utility only 
tells the ZEO server to get started, then waits for it to finish.  It

The analysis phase of packing can take a long time.  A week is too much, 
though. :-)

If I were solving it, I would see what happens if I copy the storage to 
RelStorage and then pack it.  Maybe that's just me though.
