It definitely is not an issue for me, because my Zope Sites
are still small (I never did pack up to now).

But large Zope sites with lots of temporary objects may need repacking
before they consume too much disk space.

Maybe, a patch would be a compromise.
Sites that need to care can apply the patch. Those that do not,
simply ignore it.
The patch could be announced with the problem report.
