Should you defragment your Windows iPod?

I asked myself that question today and after some Googling, I concluded:

Most people agree that the extra stress and potential failure a defragmentation inflicts on your iPod's hard drive, is more harmful than the extra work your drive will have to do when playing back fragmented songs. Now, I'm a bit of a control freak and all though I'm in no actual control of how things are stored on the iPod, I tend to do a complete restore about every year, to clean up the iPod's database and transfer my entire music collection in a contiguous manner to the iPod's drive. Doing so will hopefully keep my iPod safe, longer lasting (battery wise) and fragmentation free.
