Nope, that is pointless because Linux has superior file systems. The only time you may see some fragmentation is when you stuff a partition to the max. It is not difficult to understand why. Think of a file system as lines of blocks. When you write a file, it takes up one line. If the file does not fill the line, there remains some free space on that line. The second line does the same, etc. Now when you all lines are taken and you want to store more, things get a bit messy (fragmented) because those new files need to be split over any lines that still have some free space. If you keep this in mind, fragmentation is simply nothing to worry about.
