Getting rid of lots of tiny annex’d files

When I started using git annex I annex’d a few folders full of thousands
of mostly tiny files; there were big files too, hence the use of
git-annex. I now realise that this is making git slow because it’s got
a lot of symlinks to keep track of. Since I very rarely access these
files I plan to tar up the folders, and annex the tar archives, thus
taking a lot of load off git.
Now that my history is full of loads of tiny symlinks and git-annex logs
though, would it be better to start a fresh repository or will a git
repack remove any performance issues?
