The optimization part simply isn't necessary in Mercurial, so no time is 

Due to the optimizations / repacking, git repositories after gc can be smaller 
than mercurial ones (especially for binary data it seems to me from my own 
tests), but optimizing takes time (and I'm bound to forget it all the 
time :) ). 

For the sake of completeness, I just setup a page with links to comparisions:
