I think that's a courier thing. All folders have to live inside the
INBOX.

Can't you imagine that a . is a / ? ;-) Surely a flat format is as
good as anything for humanly-manageable numbers of groups?

I'm sure you can get gnus to move things around for you, but then
you'll be confusing courier, which seems to defeat the object.
