It turns out this is possible by setting 'gnus parameters':

(setq gnus-parameters
    (display . all))))

The 'all' in this case means that read ones are included (exactly what I
wanted).  I found out about this from the 'Limiting' section of the
'Summary Buffer' section of the info, which links to the 'Group
Parameter' section of the 'Group Buffer' section.

With this setting entering the group is kind of slow.  Is there
something else I can turn off to speed it up?  Maybe I could mark most
of them dormant and send them to a cache, but then it will probably get
out of sync with slrnpull's cache which is where the articles are
actually received from the net.  If they are expired in the spool, will
they expire in the gnus cache?  I'll give it a try and report back here
if everything goes well.
