AIUI amongst other things --aggressive forces a full repack of the
repo, which optimises the delta compression in the pack files. You
could probably achieve most of the effect with `git repack`. It's
probably diminishing returns at this point but there are options there
to make it spend (lots) more time/memory to make things even smaller.

That's much better ;-)
