I do not recommend this scheme for you. It will be too slow, that you
will run away from Gnus after few months. 

I think It would be better to set Maildir backend in you delivery agent,
and then use it by Gnus. But the best decision (as I see it) is to set
`mail-sources' variable, and use `nnml' as your back-end.
