Yet another maildir question

Hey ho.

I've installed Courier imap server and it's working now, but I wonder
about directory hierarchies.

Evidently ~/Maildir is INBOX, and each subdirectory .dirname
corresponds to a group called INBOX.dirname.  This leads to fairly
unwieldy group names: nnimap+PW:INBOX.blah.  But I guess I can live
with this.  But *must* every group start with INBOX?

But I'd like the folder hierarchy to reflect the logical structure of
the group names -- I think.  At least it seems to make sense to me to
have INBOX.tue.research in INBOX/.tue/.research.  Am I wrong that this
is sensible?  Is a flat directory better?  If not, how do I get gnus
to move things the way I want?

people could actually exist, outside of myths or legends, welcome to
the real world." --James S Harris on evil incarnate's Usenet presence
