Yeah, I don't think there's any way around the creation of the
.nnmaildir directories, at least not given the way Gnus currently
functions. They aren't actually copies of the emails -- just vectors of
headers for each mail -- but obviously if you've got a lot of mail they
still take up a lot of space.

Sorry Gnus won't work out!
