Yes. However, for leafnode 1.9.x and the non-ma leafnode 2.0b versions,
the length of the path pointing to leafnode must have the same length:
You can copy /var/spool/news to /usr/spool/news (even on a different
machine), but you cannot copy /var/spool/news to /exile/spool/news, for
example. If you do this with leafnode 1.9.x and 2.0b, Message-ID based
access will fail because the hashing no longer works.

Newer 2.0b8 versions don't suffer from this dependency.
